Former CMS Senior Counsel Peter Szilas has joined Jalsovszky as a Senior Associate and Head of the firm’s Commercial Litigation practice.
Specializing in litigation and disputes, Szilas previously spent over ten years at CMS, where he first worked as a Senior Associate, between 2011 and 2021, and later as a Senior Counsel, from 2021 to 2022. Earlier, he was a Legal Counsellor at Hungary’s Ministry of Public Administration and Justice, between 2010 and 2011, and at the Ministry of Justice and Law Enforcement, from 2007 to 2010. Between 2003 and 2007, he was a Counsel with Hungary’s Ministry of Justice.
“Joining Jalsovszky means joining not only a law firm for me but, above all, a culture and a well-functioning community of people,” Szilas commented. “I find it particularly exciting to join a growing and developing dispute resolution practice, which offers me many professional and business challenges.”
“Peter is the transfer of the year in the team,” Jalsovszky Managing Partner Pal Jalsovszky added. “Peter’s arrival is a true reflection of our commitment to raising our litigation team to the level of the leading law firms in the area. And Peter’s experience in drafting the New Civil Code of Hungary will bring invaluable added professional expertise to the firm.”
