From these honorific titles we are especially proud about winning the titles of the „Most Outstanding and the Most Innovative Law Firm of the Year” as we think that these are mirroring our ambitions and priorities the most.

BWSP Gobert & Partner as a boutique law firm has always managed to stand out from the crowd of law firms by innovation, creativity and forward-thinking combined with a client-focused, international but still locally personalised service. We always have and will in the future create additional value for our clients by providing not only a general corporate and commercial legal practice but niche products and unique borderline areas as tax litigation, data protection, fraud investigation or IT/IP law as well.

In the evaluation process we have been in competition with all national and international law firms on the Hungarian market and have been especially recognised for:

  • Solving particularly high-profile or complex corporate cases
  • Having expanded into new jurisdictions or specialist areas
  • Demonstrating excellence in client service
  • Braking the mould for innovation

Therefore, we are thankful that our hard work was acknowledged on an international level as well and hope that we can continue to further improve in successful cooperation with You all!

 Kind regards,

 Dr. Arne Gobert
Managing Partner


BWSP Gobert & Partners win a complex international legal case for an international hotel on second instance in German high court.

Our law firm is proud to announce that our legal team managed to win a complicated cross border case based on culpa in contrahendo ("fault in conclusion of a contract", which means to recognize a clear duty to negotiate with care, and not to lead a negotiating partner to act to his detriment before a firm contract is concluded). This is not a standard case, as it is not unproblematic to win cases based on culpa in contrahendo in German courts, especially considering that our team managed to achieve this success providing German expertise out of Budapest!

Our legal team, who had taken over the case for the high court proceedings, managed to completely change the verdict on the second instance. The case involved a Middle Eastern multimillion Euro investment in Budapest.
