Teva Pharmaceuticals Hungary has hired the former Legal Director in Hungary of Sanofi-Aventis, Judit Miskolci, as its new Legal Director responsible for Hungary.
As previously reported, Teva Pharmaceuticals’ previous General Counsel for Hungary was Eszter Torok, who left the company in April, 2014, after 10 years. Gabor Antal — originally seconded from Kinstellar in May — was responsible for the company’s legal matters in the country on an interim basis. On October 1, he left Kinstellar and moved to a European role within Teva as the company's Associate General Counsel, Europe, with pan-European with respect to "certain work-streams and projects."
Miskolci joined Sanofi-Aventis as its country Deputy Legal Director in February 2007 and was appointed Legal Director in February 2011. She has substantial experience with Teva Pharmaceuticals in her background as well, however, as she worked for the company as external counsel for many years before joining Sanofi-Aventis.
