‘TW Budapest is very quick at responding and their responses are clear, comprehensible and show alternatives, cost aspects and consequences. This enables me to decide quickly and to proceed with focus on solution. In comparison to other law firms they do not bore me by citing court decisions and long legalising explanations in endless sentences.’

‘Taylor Wessing Budapest has a huge working capacity. Their strengths are their high skills in their profession, historic knowledge and knowledge of foreign languages. ’

‘Dr. Zoltán Novák is an excellent lawyer with a versatile education. Working with him is always pleasant, he is inspiring, straightforward and honest and always very helpful. Zoltán’s working capacity is enormous. It is always a pleasure to work with him.’

‘I’ve worked with partner Zoltan Novak since he joined the firm as a junior associate. He is remarkable. His English-language work product is superior to that of most native English speakers. He is thoughtful and creative. Technically, he is local counsel, but his contributions to the case far exceed those of the typical local counsel. He is good with details, but is also good at keeping his eyes on the big picture.’

‘Superior technical writing & language skills combined with localized expertise. Youthful energy but the academic rigour to their work to match up with anyone.’

‘Dr. Zoltan Novak – game changer in our international litigation centered in Washington, D.C. who has become so respected by the U.S. court that he is asked by the judge to approach the bench to assist with issues. Not even U.S. lawyers get that privilege when in U.S. courts.’
