– How it helps: Advisory is a special mixture in the IT field. A pure business or legal minded provider without the relevant and up-to-date understanding of technology may not provide the quality of service expected by the clients. I am providing this mixture of services. Technology is a fast race which requires a close and trusted contact to tailor the services so they are useful not only today but in the long term. It is my pleasure and my commitment to support my clients this way.

As a lawyer, I gained significant experiences at the GÖHMANN Law Firm in Hanover, at the Bérczes Law Office and at the SBG&K Law Offices in Budapest. I was elected as the founding chair of the Hungarian Association of Info-Communication Lawyers and was elected as the local chair of the Business Software Alliance for 2 years.
