Dr. Henrietta Hanyu

Lawyer, Employment Lawyer, Mediator

I founded my own law firm in July of 2021, aiming to increase my work as a mediator while continuing my activities as an employment lawyer. Nowadays, more and more employers choose the cost-efficient alternative dispute resolution instead of litigation. While previously the acknowledgement that conflicts exist in the organization was a taboo, several brave managers showed up recently, who are ready to show mistakes and even their vulnerability. For these progressive managers to engage a mediator is not a shame, it is rather the sign of self-awareness and of democratic leadership.

In the field of Employment Law

Graduating from the Faculty of Law at Eötvös Loránd University, in 2007, I first encountered the discipline of employment law first while I was still in my third year at the university, and my engagement towards this field has been unbroken since.

In 2009, I gained a postgraduate degree as an employment lawyer from the University of Szeged, Faculty of Law.

Actively involved in employment law for more than 15 years, I have represented employees, trade unions as well as employers.

A Wolters Kluwer Kiadó Munkajogi Kiskönyvtár sorozatának elemeként 2015-ben megjelent Munkajogi kárfelelősség a gyakorlatban c. kötet szerzője vagyok.

I was working for the employment praxis of the Law Firm of CLV Partners for the last 3 years (2018 - 2021), where I have provided legal support for Hungarian and multinational companies, involving almost all areas of employment law. Moreover, I have participated in the activities of the expert groups of Ius Laboris, an international employment-law organisation, as well as contributing to the treatment of cross-border, multinational and transnational employment issues in cooperation with various partner law firms.

In 2021, I was acknowledged by Legal 500 for my work performed at CLV in the category of “Next Generation Partners” in the field of Employment.

In the field of Mediation:

As a scholar for the Rézler Gyula Foundation, I spent a full semester in 2015 in the United States of America where I studied mediation at the University of New Mexico, simultaneously participating in the related practice at the Mediation Division of the Metropolitan Court of Bernalillo County. It would be no exaggeration to say that, to this day, I still draw great influence and inspiration from the complex issues I learnt and experienced there.

In order to expand my knowledge on this topic, in particular, in regard to mediation practices in Europe, I attended a series of mediation courses in Vienna between 2016 and 2018, earning an official mediation qualification.

I have been a registered mediator in Hungary since spring of 2018.
