MSC Cruises Compliance Officer Maria Dardai has joined Kinstellar as a Special Counsel.

Dardai has been the acting Compliance Officer of Switzerland-based MSC Cruises since June 2018. Prior to that, she was an Of Counsel and Head of Compliance Projects with CMS. Earlier still she spent seven years with UPC Hungary as the VP General Counsel Compliance Officer and Liberty Global Compliance & Ethics Committee member. Dardai has also served as the General Counsel Country Compliance Officer for ABB Hungary, as the Head of Legal of T-Kabel Magyarorszag, and as the Head of Legal, Compliance and Internal Audit of Nomura.

“We are very pleased to have Maria join our team in Budapest," commented Kinstellar Budapest Managing Partner Kristof Ferenczi. "Her in-depth compliance expertise and broad experience will add further capability to Kinstellar’s Compliance, Risk, and Sensitive Investigation service line, which is important given the ever-increasing focus by our clients on compliance, and the regulatory developments around whistleblowing systems."

This year, Dardai contributed to Issue 1.2 of the CEE In-House Matters magazine with an article on the Wistlebowing Directive (accessible here).
