Lawyer in private practice, Member of the Budapest Bar Association
Scholarship: Summer Course on Cross-Border Civil Litigation (119B03)
Trier, 24 June – 28 June 2019
“The Summer Course enabled me to improve my knowledge of cross-border civil litigation on the European level. Great lectures given by some of the best professors and practitioners in this area of law, perfect organization and interesting social program succeeded in making this experience very valuable.”
What is your legal background, your current occupation and country of work?
I am a Hungarian attorney, member of the Budapest Bar Association. I lead an independent legal practice and I specialise in civil and commercial matters, representing clients in both domestic and cross-border cases.
How do you use European law in your current work?
I represent clients not only in domestic but also in cross border cases, such as international companies or Hungarian companies having international partner, as well as foreign citizens or expats living in Budapest.
Besides my practice as an attorney, I am also a mediator and very keen to learn more about the legal framework and the practice of mediation in the EU.
What is your motivation for attending this particular event??
After graduating from university, I gained a post-graduate degree on European Union Law, but many years have passed and it is time to refresh my educational background. My goal is to demonstrate a high level of experience and skill in Private International Law and European Law to offer legal services of a greater international scope to my clients.
Globalisation and technology have a great influence on the way legal services shall be delivered; it has changed the practice of law in general. Therefore, I am committed to meeting that challenge and advancing my knowledge of international regulation. With that in mind, it was truly an outstanding opportunity for me to attend the ERA Summer Course on cross-border civil litigation.
How did you benefit from the scholarship?
The scholarship was for me an extraordinary opportunity to be part of this prestigious training programme.
I was impressed by the professionalism of the seminar. Quite possibly it was the best and most informative training I have ever attended. I have gained in-depth understanding of the application of Rome I and Rome II Regulations, and of the recent CJEU cases in complex law suits with international elements.
As a mediator I assist in solving business disputes and family law cases, having an increasing number of cases with international elements, therefore I truly enjoyed the Mediation, ADR & ODR panel on the last day of the training.
Ever since I came back from the training, I have felt confident advising my clients on difficult cross-border deals. Participating in the Summer Course undoubtedly paved the road to my future career, and I am also very grateful for the amazing colleagues whom I had the chance to meet at the training.
