Former Kinstellar Counsel Akos Mates-Lanyi has joined Noerr’s Budapest practice as Head of M&A/Transactions.
Mates-Lanyi has over 12 years of experience advising both domestic and international clients. Before joining Kinstellar in December 2015 he worked for a year and a half in the Budapest office of Dentons (and legacy White & Case) and for six and a half years at DLA Piper.
Noerr Budapest Office Head Zoltan Nadasdy was enthusiastic about the addition, saying: "We are proud and excited about Akos joining us at a time when Noerr is developing fast in Hungary. Akos will bring critical expertise to our young and dynamically growing team, which serves an increasing number of international clients."
Joerg Menzer, Noerr Regional Managing Partner of CEE, emphasized: "We very much look forward to Akos coming on board, and this important move is evidence of our commitment to progressing Noerr into a truly regional force in all core areas of the legal advisory business in CEE. Akos will work from day one with our leading M&A professionals across the region and in Germany as the case may be on major transactions."
Akos graduated from Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest in 2006 and has completed a series of advanced postgraduate courses at the Corvinus University of Economics in Budapest.
