Jozsef Antal, the former Head of Legal and Compliance at Metro Cash & Carry Hungary, has returned to private practice by joining Kapolyi Law Firm as a Partner.

Antal joined Metro Cash & Cary Hungary in January 2020 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on January 21, 2020). Prior to that, he was the Chief Legal Counsel of Unix Auto since 2019 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on July 9, 2019). Before moving in-house, he was Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution at Baker McKenzie, a firm he first joined in 1999.

He currently also serves as a Member of the Supervisory Board at the Hungarian Food Bank and is the Vice President of the Hungarian Arbitration Association.

Antal told CEE Legal Matters: "While the head of legal and compliance department role at a multinational company was interesting and demanding, I decided to say 'yes' when friends from a reputable and strongly upcoming Hungarian law firm asked me to take over and build further their disputes practice. This seems to be quite an inspiring challenge."
