CMS welcomes new CEE Managing Director


Dóra Petrányi was appointed the CEE managing director of CMS and will be responsible for the managing and development of the firm’s operations in Central and Eastern Europe, according to a press release issued today.

Petrányi begins her four-year term with effect from May, succeeding Andrew Kozlowski who has managed CMS’ CEE operations since 2011. Petrányi’s role will cover CMS offices in Bucharest, Budapest, Kyiv, Poznań, Prague, Sofia, Istanbul and Warsaw. 

With more than 20 years of experience in the region and based in Budapest, Petrányi has held a number of leadership positions including deputy managing partner for CEE and co-head of the CEE TMC Group. Her experience in leading regional teams and cross-border projects includes nine years in a leadership in-house position with Deutsche Telekom’s Hungarian subsidiary – one of the largest companies in Central and Eastern Europe. Her areas of specialization span from IT law, competition law, IP law, public procurement matters and general commercial contracts, to corporate restructuring and M&A. She joined the firm in 2009. 

“CMS is well positioned to meet all the complex challenges and opportunities faced by our clients,” Petrányi said. “My priorities are to build on our firm’s commitment to consistently provide our clients with the highest quality service and ensure that our teams work in a supportive and dynamic culture.” 

Stephen Millar, CMS managing partner, commented: “Petrányi brings fantastic insight and experience to this key role. CEE continues to be an important region for us and we were delighted to be recognized as CEE Team of the Year by Chambers at the end of last month. I am looking forward to working with Petrányi and the CEE team to build on this success.”
