Berekmeri-Varro — who specializes in pharmaceutical law — joins from Jeantet (the former Budapest office of Gide Loyrette Nouel) where she was an Attorney-at-Law and Head of Competition & Regulatory. Berekmeri-Varro told CEE Legal Matters that her new role at Deloitte Legal is to build and lead the healthcare and pharmaceuticals team.

The newly opened Budapest office of Jeantet recently also announced the hire of Kornel Szabo, who will be stepping in as the Head of Competition.
