Former CMS Senior Counsel Peter Szilas has joined Jalsovszky as a Senior Associate and Head of the firm's Commercial Litigation practice.

Specializing in litigation and disputes, Szilas previously spent over ten years at CMS, where he first worked as a Senior Associate, between 2011 and 2021, and later as a Senior Counsel, from 2021 to 2022. Earlier, he was a Legal Counsellor at Hungary’s Ministry of Public Administration and Justice, between 2010 and 2011, and at the Ministry of Justice and Law Enforcement, from 2007 to 2010. Between 2003 and 2007, he was a Counsel with Hungary’s Ministry of Justice.

"Joining Jalsovszky means joining not only a law firm for me but, above all, a culture and a well-functioning community of people," Szilas commented. "I find it particularly exciting to join a growing and developing dispute resolution practice, which offers me many professional and business challenges."

"Peter is the transfer of the year in the team," Jalsovszky Managing Partner Pal Jalsovszky added. "Peter's arrival is a true reflection of our commitment to raising our litigation team to the level of the leading law firms in the area. And Peter's experience in drafting the New Civil Code of Hungary will bring invaluable added professional expertise to the firm."


Jalsovszky is one of Budapest’s fastest-growing and most innovative law firms. The key to our success is a business-focused approach paired with logical thinking. Clients appreciate that we are never afraid to voice our opinion even in critical situations.

We regard ourselves as a boutique law firm. No matter how experienced our associates are, we cannot be fully conversant in every area of the law, even in the field of commercial law. But when it comes to what we specialise in, we consider ourselves to be among the best.

Whether with regard to our clients or our staff, it is a human-oriented thinking that defines us. It is important for us to build personal relationships with our clients. We believe a personal relationship does not get in the way of providing a high-quality professional service – on the contrary, it makes the co-operation even more effective. We aim, further, to provide our colleagues with a friendly and supportive environment in which they can find fulfilment and motivation.

Our firm’s market-leading role and the exceptional quality of our legal team is acknowledged year in, year out by numerous international rating agencies (including the publications Legal500, Chambers and Partners, IFLR and International Tax Review).
