SBGK was again recognized as TIER 1 firm in all four categories. SBGK is the only firm which has achieved the highest performance in patent contentious, patent prosecution, trade mark contentious/copyright and trademark prosecution categories.

For detailed description see below and here.


SBGK excels in both patent prosecution and litigation work. This Budapest-based law firm has been in this business for over 40 years. Rivals say the firm’s IP team is often seen in pharmaceutical patent disputes. “They are pleasant to work with it even on the other side,” says one opponent. The patent team is led by lawyer Katalin Szamosi and patent attorney Katalin Mészárosné Dónusz. Other notable patent practitioners in the team are Ádám Szentpéteri Jr, Péter Lukácsi and Zsolt Szentpéteri.

Trade Mark & Copyright

Boutique firm SBGK houses one of the elite IP teams in this jurisdiction. The firm offers a comprehensive service in IP including prosecution and copyright advice. Managing partner Katalin Szamosi and Péter Lukácsi are the leading lights in a team of experienced soft IP practitioners. Máté Borbás, Enikő Karsay and Gabriella Sasvári are also notable in their field. Szamosi is listed in Managing IP's Top 250 Women in IP (2017). Ádám György is a rising star to watch. Case studies reveal the firm represented Seven Towns in the high-profile Rubik's Cube shape mark dispute which reached the CJEU. The firm is also advising a streaming music provider on a recent court case concerning performers' royalties.
