Jozsef Antal Becomes Chief Legal Counsel at Unix Auto in Hungary


Former Baker McKenzie Partner Jozsef Antal has become the Chief Legal Counsel at Hungarian spare auto parts trading company Unix Auto Kft.

Antal joined Baker McKenzie Budapest in 1999, after graduating summa cum laude from the Jozsef Attila University of Sciences Faculty of Law, in Szeged, Hungary. At Baker McKenzie he primarily advised clients on litigation, alternative dispute resolution, and public procurement matters. He was made partner and head of Dispute Resolution at the firm from 2007 to 2019.

Speaking to CEE Legal Matters, Antal explained that: "After 20 years as an external counsel, I felt the need for some fresh air in my professional life; to broaden my experience as a lawyer as well as to become a bit closer to business. This is why I decided to go in-house. Unix has been a great choice for me to start this new role. This company was established right after the fall of the communist regime in 1990, and now it has almost three thousand employees in three countries.  Unix is still in the strongly expanding phase, where a complex legal function is to be built up now, mirroring the growing complexity of the organization - which is an exciting challenge for me."
