“We are very pleased to have Maria join our team in Budapest," commented Kinstellar Budapest Managing Partner Kristof Ferenczi. "Her in-depth compliance expertise and broad experience will add further capability to Kinstellar’s Compliance, Risk, and Sensitive Investigation service line, which is important given the ever-increasing focus by our clients on compliance, and the regulatory developments around whistleblowing systems."

This year, Dardai contributed to Issue 1.2 of the CEE In-House Matters magazine with an article on the Wistlebowing Directive (accessible here).
