Dr. László Simon
Currently I am the partner of L.S. Simon Attorneys-at-Law of HU-1135 Budapest, Tahi út 53-59, Hungary, established in Budapest in 1983. In order to benefit from the knowledge and expertise gathered during management of restructuring of a major state-owned firm occurred first ever in Hungary on the eve of democratic transformation, I joined Law Office # 12 in 1988, which was restructuring as Simon, Bűrös & Partners in February 1993, as Simon & Petz in March 2003, and again as L.S.
