Dispute Resolution

VJT & Partners is well aware that the effective management and resolution of disputes is of critical importance to companies from a corporate risk management point of view. The strategic objectives of our clients are always on our mind. We regularly provide legal advice on pre-litigation strategy and various alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. When it comes to litigation, we focus on the business needs of our clients and provide practical and cost-effective advice.

We have the breadth of experience to recommend strategy to clients across the full range of commercial, corporate, employment, real estate, administrative, insurance and tax litigation as well as arbitration.

We also regularly represent clients in various administrative proceedings before the Public Procurement Council, the National Media and Communications Authority, the Data Protection Authority, the Hungarian Competition Office and the Consumer Protection Authority.

We are also frequently involved in disputes in other jurisdictions with Hungarian legal aspects where we act in conjunction with local counsel.

Many of our lawyers are particularly experienced in employment litigation matters concerning a wide range of issues including unlawful termination, overtime payment or bonus claims. Our recent contentious employment work includes advising a global financial services provider on non-compete payment claims and representing a major outsourcing company in connection with unlawful termination and overtime payment claims.

We have expertise in handling a broad spectrum of commercial and corporate litigation matters. Recently we successfully represented a market leading company in a dispute with its distributor which violated non-compete obligations, as well as advising a major company in several cases involving disputes over the validity of the company’s general terms and conditions.
