Hungarian lawyers Boglarka Borbely, Adam Gyorgy, and Krisztian Osztopani have been promoted to Partner at SBGK.
According to SBGK, the three "have been working at SBGK as attorneys at law for many years and earned a professional reputation with their outstanding expertise, dedication to the legal community, professional and academic performance, and niche contribution to the business development activity."
Boglarka Borbely, who specializes in public procurement, joined SBGK in 2014. She has a Masters’ degree from the Eotvos Lorand University Faculty of Law. Prior to joining SBGK she spent almost a year with the Hungarian Ministry of the Interior.
Adam Gyorgy “has recently been involved in complex IP contentious cases and he represented a client before the Court of Justice of the European Union,” according to SBGK. He has a JD, an LL.M., and a Ph.D. from the Eotvos Lorand University as well as an LL.M. degree in Intellectual Property and Competition Law from Munich Intellectual Property Law Center. Prior to joining SBGK in 2012, he spent almost half a year with Hogan Lovells.
Krisztian Osztopani has “established a unique data protection and data privacy practice group,” reports SBGK, adding that he "provides a full scope of legal advice on data protection and data privacy and he serves as a data protection officer at some of his clients.” He has a JD from the University of Pecs. Prior to joining SBGK in 2018, he spent over six years with the National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of Hungary.
“The appointment of three excellent young colleagues to partner is not only a recognition of their efforts and work but also a milestone in the life of the firm,” said SBGK President Katalin Szamosi. “This is the first time that three colleagues have been promoted as partners at the same time, moreover from three different legal areas. This is proof and confirmation of work of many years which have led SBGK Attorneys at Law to become an innovative and trustworthy professional partner in other areas of business law, beyond intellectual property law."
The three new partner appointments increases the number of SBGK partners to 11.
