4 September 2017 - Dentons has strengthened its platform in Hungary with the recruitment of Balázs Csuday, former Ambassador of Hungary, as Senior Counsel. He has joined Dentons’ Regulatory practice in Budapest, and will substantially enhance Dentons’ capabilities in public affairs, statutory compliance, and regulation.

Csuday has considerable experience in representing and advising the most senior levels of the Hungarian Government, Hungarian and multinational corporations, and the European Union, in various international contexts. He was previously Director, Public Sector and Government Relations, at PwC in Budapest. Prior to that, he served in the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he was Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary with the Permanent Mission of Hungary to the UN and Other International Organizations in Vienna. Also, as ambassador, he was responsible for opening the Hungarian Embassy in Quito, Ecuador.

Csuday was educated at the Faculty of Law at Eötvös Loránd University, the Diplomatic Academy of Complutense University in Madrid, and the School of Law at Fordham University, New York.

István Réczicza, Hungary Managing Partner at Dentons, said, “It is a pleasure and an honor to welcome Balázs Csuday to our team. His experience at the highest level of international regulatory development and public affairs adds considerable weight and experience to our capabilities in these areas. His appointment also underlines the contribution of our Budapest office to the legal environment in Hungary and across the entire region.”

Dentons’ Budapest office recently received the IFLR National Law Firm of the Year Award for Hungary - for the second year running - at the IFLR European Awards, shortly after the firm was named ‘Europe Law Firm of the Year’ at the Chambers Europe Awards.
