Austrian firm Schoenherr has shaken up its Budapest office with the appointment of a new managing partner and head of real estate.
Budapest M&A head Kinga Hetényi has taken over as managing partner of the office, replacing László Szécsényi, who led the office for two years. Hetényi will continue in the M&A head role.
The firm has hired Sándor Habóczky from local law Mura Attorneys at Law to head its real estate practice in Hungary.
“We have a very positive outlook for 2010,” said Hetényi. “M&A business has significantly revived in the last few months. Several transactions are going on at the moment and new investors are entering the Hungarian market. The time to take over responsibility for an office in this market is just about right and offers thrilling opportunities to further develop the business.”
Before joining Schoenherr legacy firm Szécsényi Ügyvédi Iroda in 2005 Hetényi worked as an in-house counsel at Philip Morris. Before that she spent nine years at Baker & McKenzie.
