Dentons rehires banking and finance partner


Dentons has rehired banking and finance lawyer Gábor Király as a partner in the Budapest office.

Király had been a counsel at Dentons from 2015 to 2020, before serving for a short period as director of portfolio management at GB & Partners in Hungary. His rejoining Dentons will further strengthen the firm’s leading banking and finance and regulatory offering in Hungary and the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and South Eastern Europe (SEE) regions.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Gábor back to our team. He is a highly respected lawyer and his experience as senior legal counsel at the National Bank of Hungary, deputy CEO at CIB Bank and director of Portfolio Management at GB & Partners gives him unrivaled first-hand knowledge of both the public and private sectors,” said Gergely Horváth, partner and head of Dentons’ banking and finance group in Budapest.

Király advises governmental agencies, lenders, borrowers and sponsors on debt, equity, and distressed debt transactions. He also advises on a wide range of banking, project finance, regulatory, and derivative/treasury matters. He is recommended as a leading lawyer by independent legal directories such as The Legal 500 EMEA and IFLR1000.

“Gábor is a strong addition to our capabilities in Banking and Finance and Regulatory in Hungary and across the region,” said István Réczicza, Hungary managing partner at Dentons. “He is a very experienced and seasoned lawyer, both as an in-house counsel and as a legal advisor. Gábor will help us to serve our clients better and grow the practice across the CEE/SEE region."
