KLO was founded in 1991, and has become a flourishing and successful family run enterprise, still owned and managed by the funding partners. After the establishment, KLO had the opportunity to take part in the privatization of the real estate assets of the municipalities, following the changes in the legal regulations regarding real estate ownership rights. Parallel to this, KLO was successful in building up a stable clientele, which granted secure business operations throughout the next decade. From 2002 KLO was involved in the expropriation in favour of the development of the highway system of Hungary. This mandate lasted until 2010, and made KLO one of the largest domestically owned law offices in Hungary. Since 2010, KLO increased its operations in the private sector, working for international financial investors, real estate developers, and local enterprises from various fields of businesses.
