I started out as sales manager at a trading house that was engaged in international trade and finance. I developed and managed export-import deals and directed SMEs at dometic and foreign markets as CEO for nearly 25 years. Since 2000 as counsellor I am involved in the work of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC Hungary) where I drafted parts of two fundamentally important usages in international trade (the documentary credit and the Incoterms) and also parts of the new Hungarian Civil Code concerning the bank-guarantee. From 2007 I have been lecturing the practice and law of international trade at the Budapest Business School (in Hungarian, English and German language) and have supported over 300 students as thesis supervisor. I am a guest professor for two courses at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW). Providing expert opinion in the realm of international contract financing still plays an integral part of my professional work.

Research areas

  • My research activity focuses on two topics that profoundly affect the practice of internation trade:
  • a) trade (export) compliance issues, and
  • b) the impact of digitalisation on international trade law (usages).
  • The study of the universally applied and acknowledged usage of international trade, the Incoterms is also a key part of my professsional work and academic research.
