Fazekas Answers Invitel Group's Call to Take on Legal and Regulatory Role


Invitel Group has hired Balazs Fazekas as its new Director of Legal and Regulatory Affairs in Budapest. 

Fazekas was an Associate with White & Case in Hungary from 1995 to 2008, at which time he was appointed Counsel and placed in charge of leading the firm's CEE regional telecommunication/media/technology practice group. In 2014 he established his own TMT boutique, Dr. Fazekas Balazs Ugyvedi Iroda, but he reports that he "kept close ties and remained available for White & Case, then Dentons (following the Budapest W&C team move to Dentons), on a project/contract basis."

Fazekas joins the Invitel Group after the departure of Gergo Budai, the company's former General Counsel and Deputy CEO, who recently joined Vodafone (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on August 10, 2017).
