DLA Piper has announced that Oppenheim Partners Gabor Fejes and Zoltan Marosi are set to join the firm as a Partner and Local Partner, respectively, early in 2022.
Both Fejes and Marosi worked for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer when it had an office in Hungary and both stayed with the team of the Oppenheim law firm, founded in 2007 after Freshfields exited Hungary.
Fejes first joined Freshfields in 1998 and has been heading the Oppenheim Antitrust, Competition, and Trade (ACT) practice since 2007. According to DLA Piper, he specializes in Hungarian and EU antitrust competition law (cartel law), the law of unfair competition and consumer protection, as well as the meeting points of competition law and private law.
Marosi joined Freshfields in 2003. He became an Associate at Oppenheim in 2007 and was appointed to Partner in 2014. According to DLA Piper, he focuses on Hungarian and EU antitrust law, consumer protection law, and administrative litigation.
"Oppenheim is grateful to Gabor and Zoltan for their excellent work and personal commitment displayed in the last two decades," stated an Oppenheim press statement. "Both are known as leading antitrust, competition, and trade law practitioners. They had an eminent role in building up Oppenheim’s ACT practice as one of the finest in our country and have thus contributed to Oppenheim’s reputation as a leading independent law firm covering all aspects of business law. We wish Gabor and Zoltan a lot of success and the very best in their new endeavors."
