Bird & Bird (Budapest)
Lawyer (Senior Associate)

He is a senior associate in the Corporate, Commercial and Competition & EU Groups in Budapest, where he focuses on regulatory and competition matters in the energy sector, and also offer in-depth experience in tech & comms. His team and himself have a keen interest in energy, and always thrive to work with the technical and business experts of the Hungarian and international clients to make sure that every aspect of the matter is covered and the pieces fall into the right place at the right time. They have a variety of clients active in virtually the entire electricity and oil and gas supply chains, who have trusted us to guide them through complex cross-border and domestic projects and transactions, be it an M&A deal, project development, financing or corporate restructuring. He has represented the clients before the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority, the Euratom Supply Agency and the European Commission. He particularly likes the excitement of learning and analysing how the markets and businesses of the clients work. He is convinced that such a deep dive into market and business correlations is key in handling competition matters and requires continuous cooperation with the expertise of the clients. The competition team has implemented this approach across numerous industry sectors and advised domestic and multinational clients on merger clearance, commercial anti-trust matters, cartel investigations, sector inquiries and state aid issues, including representation before the Hungarian Competition Authority, the Hungarian State Aid Monitoring Office and the European Commission. He has been fortunate enough to have gained a valuable insight into the tech & comms industry, and understand the energy and buzz that comes from working in an innovative field whilst advising the national and international clients on M&A deals, commercial agreements and regulatory issues such as spectrum management, frequency tenders and SMP obligations, to name a few. Before joining Bird & Bird, he spent several years in the Budapest teams of other leading international law firms and was seconded to the Hungarian subsidiary of the international gas and electricity company GdF Suez for six months. In addition to his native Hungarian, he is fluent in English and have a good command of German.
