Melinda Vittay

Associate - Corporate and Competition

The first time I heard of Allen & Overy was at a job fair during my Erasmus year in the UK. I had the chance to enroll in a competition law course that was held by two lawyers from the Budapest office. The course fully convinced me of two things: I would like to specialise in this field of law, and the best place to do this is Allen & Overy.

I applied for a paralegal position in the Budapest office, and subsequently, after spending my traineeship here, I am now an associate in the corporate and competition practice.

Besides on-the-job training and supervision, I have taken part in induction training for trainees working in Central and Eastern European countries, and a university competition designed for associates wishing to be specialized in this area. The office also supported my idea to work as a Blue Book trainee in the European Commission at DG Competition, and now I use the knowledge gained there during my day-to-day work.

I really appreciate the support I receive for my personal development.
