Allen & Overy has announced that Attila Csongrady will be re-joining the firm as Counsel in the firm's CEE English law Banking and Finance practice.
Csongrady is qualified in both the UK and US, and he advises commercial and investment banks, private equity houses, sponsors and companies on a wide range of financing transactions. His practice focuses predominantly on the CEE and CIS regions.
Attila first joined Allen & Overy in 1999, and he spent 2000-2006 as an Associate in the firm’s London Leveraged Finance practice. In 2006, Attila relocated to Vienna where he set up and led the Vienna-based CEE/CIS English law Finance practice at Freshfields for six years. He spent a brief period at DLA Piper in Vienna as a Partner before returning to A&O.
Given the proximity of Vienna and Bratislava, Attila will be based in Allen & Overy’s Bratislava office, where he will work closely with other members of the CEE English law Banking/Finance practice, as well as with the Slovak Banking/Finance practice led by Partner Renatus Kollar.
A&O's Warsaw-based Partner Dan Cocker, who heads the firm's CEE English law Banking/Finance practice, commented: “Attila’s rejoining Allen & Overy continues our strategy of meeting client demand for top-level English law banking and finance advice across the CEE and SEE region, delivered by a specialist team based in the region – and in Attila’s case with a particular focus on clients based in Vienna.”
