Katalin Szecskay heads our banking and finance practice. She specializes in international banking and finance matters and primarily handles various types of lending activities, including project finance, real estate finance, acquisition finance and corporate finance.


Katalin has significant experience in cross-border financing and refinancing transactions. She works for a number of leading companies as borrowers, as well as banks and other financial institutions as lenders and is proud of having built up very good, long-term relationships with her clients. Having been seconded to one of the Hungarian banks for a short period, she has an in-depth knowledge of the lending activities and procedures of banks and can, therefore, in addition to legal advice, provide valuable practical tips to her clients too.


She is fluent in English, conversant in German and French.

"Katalin is very responsive and she has a good understanding of what we want to achieve. She was effective in concentrating on the important issues."
