Kapolyi Law Firm Appoints New Banking & Finance Head

12 September 2019

Dr. Balázs József Ferenczy

In June 2019, senior attorney at law Dr. Balázs József Ferenczy MBA was appointed head of Kapolyi Law Firm’s Banking and Finance Department.

Dr. Ferenczy, who has nearly 30 years’ experience as a lawyer, began his career in 1992 as a junior legal counsel at the Hungarian Credit Bank. He joined Credit Lyonnais Bank Magyarorszag Rt. In 1996 before moving to private practice as a Local Partner and Head of Banking/Finance in 1998 with Gide Loyrette Nouel.

From 2010 to 2013 he worked for his own law firm, and from November 2013 until January 2019 he was the legal director of the Cellum Group, the leading secured mobile payment technical service provider in Hungary.

Mátyás Rada, formerly an associate attorney in DLA Piper's real estate practice group, also joined the firm's real estate and corporate practice groups in June this year. From 2012 to 2016, he was a legal desk officer at the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and in 2016, he served as a consul and Hungarian community diplomat at the Consulate General of Hungary in Chicago.

‘Cutting-edge’ re-brand

In addition to the new appointments, Kapolyi Law Firm - which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year - has undergone a unique and cutting-edge re-brand, renewing not only its logo and its brand image but its website and office, with the stated purpose of reinforcing and emphasizing its leading position in the domestic financial legal market.

Managing partner József Kapolyi said, "As a leading law firm in Hungary, we need to keep up with the market and the on-going changes that characterize the business and economic environment. We would like the changes and the modernity to be reflected not only in our approach and in this year’s expansion with six people, but also in our appearance, therefore we considered it important to renew our brand image".
