Hungarian competition expert Marton Horanyi has returned to Kajtar Takacs Hegymegi-Barakonyi Baker & McKenzie as a Partner, where he join the team specializing in competition law, government funds, commercial practices and consumer protection, as well as European Union law.

He has also gained experience in the field of distribution of government subsidies, along with consumer protection and unfair commercial practices.  

Horanyi worked in the Budapest and Dusseldorf offices of Baker & McKenzie between 2007 and 2015, when he left to become a Partner at bpv Jadi Nemeth. A year later, in April of 2016, he joined EY Law in Hungary as Head of Antitrust and Competition, before moving back to Baker in September.

Budapest Managing Partner Zoltan Hegymegi-Barakonyi commented, in a statement released by the firm, that: "Competition law is a field of growing risk and elevated importance for our clients, therefore it has great significance that we can welcome a professional in the person of Dr. Marton Horanyi who has international experience.”

In re-joining Baker & McKenzie Horanyi offsets the loss of Peter Voros, who co-headed the office’s antitrust practice before moving over to Kinstellar in September (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 12, 2016).
