Gábor Király named managing officer of Dentons Budapest


Gábor Király has been elected as the new country managing officer of Dentons’ Budapest office, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

He took over the firm's top position from István Réczicza on January 1. 

Réczicza served as managing partner for more than 23 years. His tenure saw Dentons become one of the top law firms in the country. He will continue to work at the company as a senior partner focusing on providing support to clients and strengthening the firm's advisory business.

Király started his career at the Hungarian National Bank at the beginning of 1990’s. After nearly 10 years he joined the banking and finance practice group of a leading international law firm, where after a few years he assisted the firm’s clients as partner. Then, after six years he gave up his private practice to undertake an in-house counsel role at one of Hungary’s largest banks, where he gained further in-depth understanding of the banking and financial markets as general counsel, then as board member and deputy CEO. After five years he returned to legal practice. He rejoined Dentons’ banking practice group in 2015 and has been a partner since April, 2021.

Commenting on his new position, Király said, “It is a great honor and privilege that the local and international management of the world's largest law firm placed their trust in me not only to consolidate but also to take to a new level our market leadership. Working together with István Réczicza, I consider it essential to blend innovative ideas and existing traditions, as I strongly believe that we can build the future based only on a well-established, already existing strategy. I would like our office to remain a people-centered and open community for the colleagues who work here, where everyone is able to fulfill their ambitions and support the office with their professional expertise.”

“I know that like any law firm, we have a tremendous amount of work before us. Nevertheless, drawing upon Dentons’ unique global coverage, we are capable of providing unparalleled professional advice to our constantly growing clientele both in their local and global expansion.” he added.
