Daniel Szeszler

Group Legal Director - Magyar Telekom Plc.

Daniel Szeszler is the Group Legal Director of Magyar Telekom. His first role after graduating from law school was with White & Case Budapest, where he focused primarily on disputes and regulatory matters. His tenure with the firm was interrupted to carry out an LLM at University College London and an internship with the ICC International Court of Arbitration (Paris). In 2010, Szeszler joined Magyar Telekom in a senior expert role where he was soon exposed to “very stimulating matters, including an out-of-court settlement with U.S. government agencies over FCPA investigations relating to Telekom and a lawsuit against the Hungarian telecoms regulator over the market entry of a new, state-owned mobile operator.” In January 2013 he took on the role of Head of General Legal Department – one of the then three legal departments at Magyar Telekom – and was appointed the Group Legal Director effective July 2014. In this role he oversees a team of 30 lawyers, and is responsible for all legal services provided to/within Magyar Telekom Group, as well as the legal representation of the Group in front of courts and authorities.
