As part of its Lawyers’ Award competition, Wolters Kluwer announced winners in nine categories, including dispute resolution, intellectual property, energy law, antitrust law and real estate law. CHSH Dezső & Partners is the only law firm to have won an award in two categories.
In the real estate category, the jury decided that CHSH’s entry entitled “Millennium Towers – A Triumph of Innovation” showcased the most innovative solutions. In a high-value real estate transaction, CHSH resolved the conflict of interest between the seller and buyer by introducing a warranty insurance scheme.
In the antitrust category, CHSH succeeded with its entry “Dawn Raids – A Special Tool in Antitrust Enforcement”. To raise awareness of this highly effective weapon at the disposal of competition authorities and to provide assistance to companies that might be or become the target of a raid, CHSH’s antitrust team produced a guidebook that gives an overview of the most important rules applicable to dawn raids (that is, unannounced on-site inspections by the national competition authority) in Hungary. CHSH has made the guidebook available free of charge on a dedicated website, providing written research papers and analyses of the topic. It also organised a business breakfast with guest speakers from the Hungarian Competition Authority to help companies prepare for antitrust investigations. The guidebook can be downloaded free of charge from www.competition.hu, where CHSH’s antitrust experts also regularly write a blog.
Mr Tamás Polauf, Co-Managing Partner of CHSH Dezső & Partners: “We’re very proud that after last year’s award, two of our entries this year have also won awards. The secret to our success may well be that innovation and client focus, –two of the key principles that our law firm operates by, – were very successfully implemented in these two projects“. CHSH would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients, in particular the clients of our real estate and antitrust teams because without them we could not have won either of these esteemed awards. We will continue to work on offering innovative legal solutions to our clients in all areas of commercial law.
