Oppenheim has recently announced the appointment of Peter Virag – formerly of DLA Piper – as Head of its Antitrust, Competition, and Trade team.

Virag has 15 years of experience in both EU and Hungarian competition law, according to Oppenheim. His main areas of practice include antitrust cases, merger control notifications, state aid-related advice, and consumer protection investigations.

Before joining Oppenheim, he spent eight years with DLA Piper, the last seven of which as a Senior Associate, after having started as an Associate in 2016. Earlier, he spent four years as a Case Handler with the Hungarian Competition Authority, a month as an ECN Official with the European Commission's DG Competition, and two years with BNT as a Junior Associate, starting in 2009.

"I have had the privilege of working with Peter in the past and I am confident that his move to Oppenheim will contribute significantly to the further development of the practice," Managing Partner Istvan Szatmary commented. "As I need to focus more on my management responsibilities, Peter will be responsible for leading the competition practice and further strengthening our presence in the market."

"I'm proud to be joining one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in Hungary and I'm looking forward to working with Istvan again," Virag added. "My first priority will be to serve our clients by providing them with sensitive solutions, but I will also focus on the further growth of the firm. The current team of five lawyers is a solid base for this challenge."
