KNP LAW’s Budapest-based Dispute Resolution Group represents clients in litigation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution proceedings, whether they arise in Hungary or abroad.

Our lawyers have worked on dispute resolution matters in Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia, involving a wide variety of industries.  We have represented large and small companies, non-profit groups as well as entrepreneurs and private individuals. Supported by the depth and breadth of KNP LAW’s transactional practice, we bring to bear a formidable combination of expertise, experience, small-team focus and determination to succeed on behalf of our clients.

Our disputes resolution group is led by a US-trained, Hungarian-born international disputes lawyer who practiced for many years at a large, multinational US law firm where he worked closely with the firm’s Washington, DC and London teams to represent private companies and sovereign States in international arbitration and transnational litigation proceedings.

More about this service

Dispute Resolution 

Our lawyers have experience with a wide variety of dispute resolution proceedings.  We have prosecuted and defended claims on behalf of clients in Hungarian national courts, United States courts, as well as in ICC and ICSID arbitrations.  We are well suited to assist clients in arbitration before any of the major international arbitral centers, as well as before Hungarian institutions such as the Permanent Arbitration Court of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. We have deep experience with Hungarian arbitration law, and practice.  Importantly, we understand the disruption and cost that litigation brings and therefore work with our clients to resolve disputes amicably through settlement discussions, negotiations and mediation, where appropriate. 

We have a global perspective.  We understand that many (if not most) business disputes in Hungary will have an international dimension.  Hungary today is one of Europe’s most dynamic countries, with a strong economy, talented workforce, and significant growth in both inbound and outbound business investment.  Our deep international experience and exposure is one of the distinguishing features of our dispute resolution practice.  Our legal team comprises multilingual civil and common-law trained lawyers who are equally comfortable in a Hungarian courtroom, or in an international arbitration hearing abroad. 

We deploy deep industry experience.  We draw on the wealth of KNP LAW’s experience in substantive practice areas to strengthen the dispute resolution team’s understanding of the industry dynamics behind a case.


Our team is experienced in representing clients in Hungarian court proceedings around the country, and particularly in Budapest.  We counsel clients on evaluating litigation strategy, and can prosecute – or defend – claims from the trial court to the appellate level.  We are also available to assist clients with complex litigation matters involving parallel proceedings, in different judicial fora, including outside Hungary. Our lawyers have advised both the Hungarian State and foreign governments in dispute resolution matters, including in relation to national cultural patrimony. 


More discreet than litigation, faster, and more efficient, arbitration allows parties to submit their disputes to decision makers who often have a specialized background in the subject matter of the dispute.  The KNP LAW Dispute Resolution Group has a wealth of experience in domestic Hungarian arbitration, as well as international commercial and investor-State arbitration.
