Regional Counsel Legal & Corporate Affairs - Avon

Roland Csecsei is the Senior Legal Counsel at AVON for 13 years now. During his cooperation with the firm he was looking after many different markets within the CE region and currently he is managing the legal matters for the following 10 countries: Hungary, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Albania, Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro and last but not least Germany. Having such a wide varity of territorial engagement gives the possibility to learn different legal cultures and approaches which he enjoys the most. Also this fortunate mix of countries provides many opportunities to face different legal challenges and above all to meet great lawyers and people. Besides the day-to-day commercial legal counselling at AVON the lawyers are also engaged in government affairs related tasks, regulatory issues and ethics & compliance matters. In order to become the trusted advisor of the firm our approach is to bring the legal support as close to the business needs as it is possible. This approach called our new baby „Simply Legal” into existence which is an internal brand for the legal team and in the frame of which we provide targeted trainings, simplified guidences, newsletters to our business colleagues while using the simpliest possible language when doing so. Lately we have created 1 minute funny type of cartoons, and also comics about compliance related topics in order to grab the attention of our business colleagues in the current „compliance noise”.
