CEELMDirect Profile Pick: A series of interviews with partners and firms with profiles on the new CEELM Direct online legal directory. Today’s interview: Gergely Szabo, Partner at the Ban, S. Szabo, Rausch & Partners Law Office in Budapest.
CEELMDirect: Hi Gergely. According to an article on your profile on CEELM Direct, you were made Partner at Ban, S. Szabo Rausch & Partners in January 2021. What did that promotion mean to you personally?
Szabo: The promotion was a confirmation for me that all my efforts are serving the best interests of our clients and our firm. I consider that the trust of my partners helps me to further develop both professionally and personally. The future of our firm is bright and I will do my best to be an integral part of it.
CEELMDirect: Why did you decide to claim your profile on the CEELM Direct website and then upgrade it to Premium status?
Szabo: I considered that the CEELM Direct website would be a good opportunity to promote myself and our firm. I am still confident that I made the right choice and by upgrading to Premium, it would be easier to find my profile.
CEELMDirect: What single element of your profile on the CEELM Direct website are you proudest of?
Szabo: I would highlight my experience in regulatory matters.
CEELMDirect: Also on your profile is a thought leadership article you contributed to the CEELM website. What is the value, in your opinion, to spending the time to research, write, and publish such articles?
Szabo: The subject of my article – FDI – is a hot topic in Hungary and I really enjoyed the opportunity to share my thoughts about it. Furthermore, the CEELM website has great traffic and many decision-makers read the articles. Furthermore, it is an honor on its own to publish along with some of my highest-regarded peers. All these aspects helped me to write my article and consider the relevant time as well spent. I would strongly recommend all lawyers to take the opportunity and publish on the CEELM website.
CEELMDirect: Thanks so much, Gergely, and we look forward to seeing more of your articles soon!
