The EMEA Legal 500, published in April 2017 has recognised VJT & Partners as a top-tier firm for Employment for the sixth year running and as very highly recommended in a further four practice areas.

The guide comments that the ‘leading’ employment group at the firm has ‘deep knowledge’, provides ‘prompt and detailed answers’ and offers ‘flexibility and availability’. It is recognised as “having a standalone labour department which is active across the whole spectrum of employment matters, with complementary expertise in immigration law.”

Practice head Zoltán Csernus is acknowledged as a ‘go-to lawyer’, with both Managing Partner János Tamás Varga and Zoltán Csernus included in the list of elite ‘Leading Individuals’ for employment.

Three of VJT & Partners’ other practices continue to be recommended in the second tier: Commercial, Corporate and M&A, Dispute Resolution and TMT, while the firm’s Real Estate and Construction practice is in the fourth tier.
All of VJT & Partners’ partners are recommended in The Legal 500 Europe, Middle East & Africa 2017 editorial.

The guide also makes the following comments:

Commercial, corporate and M&A: “Clients of VJT & Partners are full of praise for the ‘very reliable team’ of ‘true professionals’, who are ‘organised, expedient, accurate and flexible’.

Gábor Hacsi and János Tamás Varga are well regarded.”

Real estate and construction: “‘Very skilled real estate lawyer’ Gábor Hacsi heads the practice at VJT & Partners alongside János Tamás Varga, who ‘always sees the big picture’.
