Schoenherr Names Miklós Klenanc as Head of Local M&A Practice


Schoenherr has reinforced its M&A practice in Central Eastern Europe with the new hire of Miklós Klenanc, senior attorney at law, and his appointment as local head of M&A in Hungary.

Klenanc will focus on advising national and cross-border transactions alongside Schoenherr's corporate/M&A teams across CEE.

"Schoenherr was recently awarded Mergermarket CEE M&A Legal Adviser of the Year, reaffirming our top position as the leading M&A advisor in the region," said Roman Perner, co-head of Schoenherr's M&A practice.

"Leading the Mergermarket league table as the firm with the most M&A transactions in 2023 was a great testimony for the work of our international teams. The growing number and complexity of M&A deals has increased the demand for further dedicated expertise in this field. We are thus excited to welcome Miklós Klenanc, who will boost our M&A capabilities in Hungary and the CEE region," added Alexandra Doytchinova, co-head of Schoenherr's M&A practice.

According to Schoenherr corporate/M&A partner Kinga Hetényi, "Miklós's addition to our already strong corporate/M&A practice in Hungary is another key step in the process of further strengthening our Hungarian and CEE-wide offerings."

Klenanc joined Schoenherr from an international law firm, where he dedicated over 13 years to advising multinational corporations and domestic SMEs across a wide array of industries. His expertise covers mergers and acquisitions, corporate structuring and restructuring, company simplifications, corporate law, governance, and compliance, and reversed compliance (limitation of liability, internal regulations). He is also an experienced dispute prevention and dispute resolution lawyer as well as a licensed mediator.

After obtaining his JD law degree from the University of Szeged, he received an LL.M. in comparative constitutional law with EU specialisation from Central European University. Currently, he is in the process of preparing his doctoral dissertation. Between 2017 and 2020, he was the Hungarian national representative of AIJA - International Association of Young Lawyers. Since 2019 he is a listed mediator of the Bar for client-attorney disputes. Additionally, in 2019 he was appointed to be the president of the Youth Committee of the Hungarian Law Society.
