I am a partner in our Dispute Resolution Group in Budapest, where I have extensive experience in litigation, arbitration and corporate matters.

With more than 20 years' experience specialising in litigation and arbitration matters, as well as corporate and capital markets law, I offer our Hungarian and international clients in-depth expertise in complex commercial, securities and regulatory disputes, as well as in public takeover and insider trading issues.

Over the years, I have been involved in a large number of significant matters in our litigation and dispute resolution practices including major corporate, commercial and regulatory disputes, capital markets lawsuits, anti-takeover defences and energy law. I am often involved in international commercial and treaty arbitration cases.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked for two other major international law firms, as well as in the legal practice of an international accounting firm here in Budapest. I am fluent in English in addition to Hungarian.
