The Orban & Perlaki law firm has announced it partnered with UK-headquartered Gunnercooke, with the Budapest-based firm rebranding to OPL Gunnercooke.
According to the firm, "unlike most partnerships in the big law universe, OPL has not been acquired, nor will it be a branch or local franchise office of Gunnercooke." Instead, "OPL is responsible for building up and coordinating a network of Gunnercooke lawyers and offices in the entire CEE region."
As part of the partnership, a joint venture between the two – Gunnercooke Legal Tech – will provide the global Gunnercooke network and clientele with legal tech solutions from Budapest.
One of OPL’s founders, Miklos Orban, has been appointed to Gunnercooke's leadership team as Chief Technology Officer and will also serve as Managing Partner of Gunnercooke CEE.
