Szabolcs Szendro, a member of CMS Budapest's Competition team, has been promoted to Partner at the firm, effective as of May 1, 2021.

Before joining CMS in May, 2014, Szendro spent over seven years with Hungarian Competition Authority as the Chief Legal Counsel of the Merger Division. According to CMS, "[he] has extensive experience in abuse of dominant position procedures and cartel cases, with special regards to Network Industries (e.g. Energy, Telecommunications and Media)." He graduated in 2007 from the University of Szeged in Hungary.

“This is a particularly remarkable achievement given these turbulent times, and also a source of pride for the whole office that another home-grown senior has been appointed to the partnership," said CMS Budapest Managing Partner Erika Papp. "Szabolcs has greatly contributed to the rapid development and growing market-recognition of our competition team. With two partners – Dora Petranyi and Szabolcs Szendro - on the team, the practice demonstrates increased strength and further cements its leading position on the market.”

“I am delighted, honored and equally excited about taking the role of a partner and lead[ing] our top Competition practice from May," commented Szendro. "With Dora and myself as partners in the team, we will be the only international team in Hungary [with] two competition partners actively involved in matters. I am glad to be able to build on strong foundations and an excellent team. My priority is to further develop our competition services and working in partnership with clients from prevention to hard-core competition matters.”
