The history of our office dates back to 1954, when late Dr. Jenő Gyula Fehér launched his independent law practice in Gyál, Pest County, having been forced from his career as a justice by the Communist regime. In 1973, advocate Dr. Jenő Fehér joined his father's office, which had been involuntarily functioning as a lawyers' panel at the time. Decades later, the regime-mandated monopoly of lawyers' panels came to an end, and he opened an office in Budapest, providing comprehensive services to primarily foreign clients in the area of economic law. In 2006, advocates Dr. Ákos Nemes and Dr. Dániel Fehér joined the office, renaming it Fehér & Nemes Law Office. Having international experience and training abroad and in addition to handling cases of international relevance in several Hungarian law offices, Dr. Nemes and Dr. Fehér continue to expand the scope and quality of their practice from the local to the global level. The steady increase and the demand on industry-focused consulting give rise to structural changes, thus advocate Dr. Ákos Nemes continues the cooperation with the office as an associated attorney-at-law from the year 2012 on. Advocate Dr. Ferenc Bereczky joins the office as partner in 2013 and from this time on our office takes on the name Fehér and Partners Law Office.
Within our business network, we also provide accounting, tax advisory and auditing services to our clients in Hungarian, German and English languages. Our law firm always makes an effort to estimate the clients’ wishes and conceptions therefore in the course of our activity the classic legal consultancy come to the front. Accordingly we purpose to provide our clients with a complex service in several legal fields as well as to offer them the most optimal solution in all respects. Thanks to our cooperation with foreign law offices, we give our clients a helping hand when matters of international relevance arise
Our work philosophy
The primary key to our success is the trust of our clients. Our dedication to supporting and defending their interests epitomizes our working philosophy. In our firm, Trust is based on a personal relationship with the permanent contact person. For all of our clients, a permanent contact person is responsible for their needs throughout the legal process. This rapport gradually builds up confidence between parties. This results in a kind of dialogue that is free of misunderstandings and leads to efficient cooperation between the lawyer and the client. There may be issues in which contribution from one of our other experts may become necessary. In this case, the contact person is responsible for coordinating the process and ensuring seamless information flow between the client and our office.
In a complex world and globalizing world, our firm deals not only with legal details, but also considers macro-level business concerns such as economic needs, financial norms and other regulations related to a given case.
This is essential to protecting our clients' interests. If disputes and controversies arise, our main objective is to enforce our clients' interests. We ensure rapid and efficient problem solving focused on achieving an amicable settlement. Constructiveness and readiness to compromise may not always yield results. In these cases, our experienced lawyers search out and take all possible legal action to represent our clients in court. Before commencing work, we complete a service agreement with our clients specifying all details of our cooperation. Our fees are principally based on hourly rates, but lump sums and incidental fees are used on occasion.
We have online access to all company and land registry records, and handle registry court procedures using electronic methods. We develop integrated business solutions and electronic communication with the help of SAP Business One (SBO). SBO ensures not only exact accounting processes but also rapid data flow, time- and cost-efficient communication.
The two main target groups of our office are small- and medium-sized enterprises in Hungary. We primarily provide permanent legal representation to Hungary-based companies owned by foreign investors. However, we also render legal advisory services to several large corporations. Most of our clients come from the areas of banking, insurance, building industry, machine building and distribution, advertising and media, service industry, chemical industry, food industry, and forwarding and logistics.
