Dentons advises NEPI Rockcastle on €254 million acquisition of majority stake in Mammut shopping center in Budapest

Dentons advised real estate investor and developer NEPI Rockcastle on the acquisition of 100 percent of Mammut 2 and 81 percent of Mammut 1, which jointly form the Mammut shopping center in Budapest, from leading global private equity firm Lone Star, for €254 million.

“We were very pleased to support our client on this significant transaction,” commented Judit Kővári, head of Dentons’ Real Estate group in Budapest. “This deal is a major real estate transaction for the Hungarian market and is a great example of Dentons’ ability to advise international players on their real estate projects in Hungary.”

The Dentons team on the deal was led by partners Judit Kővári, Marcell Szőnyi and Edward Keller, assisted by partners Anita Horváth and Gergely Horváth as well as counsel Gábor Király, associates Rita Várnagy, Anna Gerendás, Boglárka Zsófia Joó, János Csáki, Réka Szalóky and András Peisch, and trainee associates Zsófi
