Gábor Király has been elected as the new Country Managing Officer of Dentons’ Budapest office from January 2022.
Mr Király started his career at the Hungarian National Bank at the beginning of the 1990s. After nearly ten years he joined the banking and finance practice group of a leading international law firm, where after a few years he assisted the firm’s clients as a partner. Then, after six years he gave up his private practice to undertake an in-house counsel role at one of Hungary’s largest banks, where he gained further in-depth understanding of the banking and financial markets as general counsel, then as a board member and deputy CEO. After five years he returned to legal practice. Mr Király rejoined Dentons’ banking practice group in 2015 and has been a partner since April 2021.
“It is a great honour and privilege that the local and international management of the world’s largest law firm placed their trust in me not only to consolidate but also to take to a new level our market leadership,” commented Gábor Király. “Working together with István Réczicza, I consider it essential to blend innovative ideas and existing traditions, as I strongly believe that we can build the future based only on a well-established, already existing strategy. I would like our office to remain a people-centred and open community for the colleagues who work here, where everyone is able to fulfil their ambitions and support the office with their professional expertise.”
