  2. Banking & Finance Law

Finance is the lifeblood of business, and KNP LAW has a strong reputation in banking and finance based on years of experience providing quality advice to our clients.  We have witnessed first hand the evolution of the banking industry in Hungary over the past thirty years, and are fully conversant in the local banking and finance ecosystem.  In our relationships with our clients we act not only as legal counsel, but also as trusted business partners, who have the relationships and commercial sense to help our clients secure the most favorable outcomes.  

While in past years our practice focused on the representation of lenders and institutional investors, we have over time expanded our relationships, such that we now represent both lenders and borrowers.  Regardless which side we may be on in a particular transaction, we always act with firmness and candor and represent our clients zealously.  

During the COVD-19 pandemic, we have worked extensively with clients to help them identify and implement creative financing solutions and expect our work in this area to continue for the foreseeable future.

Advisory Services

The bulk of KNP’s work in the banking and finance domain pertains to advising and assisting clients in connection with credit and project financing agreements.  Our lawyers understand that our clients’ realization of their core strategic business goals depend on their ability to obtain appropriate financing.  We work hard to understand our clients’ commercial objectives, and partner with them to ensure that the financing arrangements we pursue align seamlessly with their needs.

In the field of project financing, our law firm has particular experience in financing related to construction and investment projects. KNP LAW also advises financial investors in connection with:

  • loans
  • security {secured transactions?}
  • liens
  • leases, and
  • deposit agreements

We also take on representations related to matters of security enforcement, loan reconstruction, and lien foreclosure.

An important aspect of our banking and finance advisory work is our ability to coordinate with other KNP LAW team members from diverse practice groups to ensure that our clients receive the best advice and guidance.  This approach not only helps our clients protect their interest by avoiding pitfalls, but it also positions our clients to take advantage of opportunities of which they may not have been aware.   

Mergers & Acquisitions 

Consistent with our reputation as a trusted partner to foreign investors doing business in Hungary, one of the key areas of KNP LAW’s banking and finance practice is investor protection, which enables us to protect our clients from both monetary loss or a damage to their reputation should an acquisition or investment not proceed as planned. Our experience in investor protection extends to representing institutional investors and non-institutional investors. KNP LAW offers valuable banking solutions in mergers and acquisitions, asset-based lending, and can provide complex financial advice regarding green-field development projects.

Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and Financing 

For clients who are looking to expand their financing options even further, we also assist in helping prepare for initial public offerings.  By their nature, IPOs are difficult, complicated, and potentially fraught with legal and commercial risk.  Our seasoned lawyers have the expertise and experience to guide them through the various stages of this process, including with respect to strategic planning, due diligence, and documentation.
