Corporate and Commercial Law
We provide a full scope of corporate legal advice and services to our clients, who range from international or local listed companies to small and medium-sized businesses, who either have foreign partners or conduct cross-border activities. Our main goal is to create and operate the best corporate structure for our clients’ business, promoting their interest.
We are particularly skilled and adept at working with foreign clients who are looking to build a presence here. Hungary today is one of the most dynamic countries in Europe, with a strong economy and a skilled, highly trained workforce. It is no surprise therefore that many foreign investors look to Hungary as a premier incorporation jurisdiction in the European Union. Excellent logistical infrastructure allows companies to access one of the world’s largest markets, while at the same time taking advantage of all that the Hungarian market has to offer. Our cross-cultural fluency allows us to work seamlessly with our clients to help them navigate the legal landscape and ensure success.
Our inter-disciplinary approach to corporate matters also accrues to the benefit of our clients, who can rest assured that we are taking a holistic approach to their corporate legal needs, ensuring that their interests are fully protected, while at the same time positioning them well for success. The breadth and depth of KNP’s experience ensures that potential problems are identified early and diffused, while strategic opportunities are maximized.

Corporate and Commercial Law
General Corporate Practice
Our corporate law practice involves general corporate matters, such as the incorporation of companies, directors’ and shareholders’ rights, articles of association, board meetings, secretarial matters and the public listing or delisting of companies. We have a team of experienced lawyers who handle compliance issues and regulatory matters, matters involving license applications, and representing our clients before local authorities and regulators. Our colleagues deal not only with providing traditional corporate legal services, but also on handling complex cross-border legal issues.
As with KNP LAW’s other practice areas, we place particular emphasis on building strong, long-term relationships with our clients. These relationships not only help us to tailor our services and advice in the most effective way possible, but they also give our clients the benefit of long-term, informed strategic thinking. We are always mindful of the big picture and work closely with our clients to ensure that short-term decisions help support the long-term vision that they have defined.
Formation and Maintenance of Joint Ventures
We assist with planning and structuring joint ventures and documenting the agreement of the parties via syndicate agreements. We are well-positioned to help with all kinds of joint ventures, but we are able to add particular value when it comes to the creation of joint ventures between foreign investors and Hungarian entities. To ensure that an appropriate joint venture mechanism is selected, our lawyers, who have practical experience in legal and commercial background, analyze the needs, opportunities and legal and business risks for clients and provide their professional advice and assistance. We also assist clients in preparing appropriate shareholders’ or joint venture agreement to govern the management and affairs of the joint venture.
