About me

Advocacy and compassion.

Welcome to my website, I'm Anita Vimlati, lawyer, mediator, and international family law counsel. I'd like to provide an all-inclusive approach that will provide clients with clarity and understanding as to their legal rights and emotional challenges. Jump on board, if that's your thing. 


Professional legal advice personally for you.

I beleive that excellence is a choice. I have a thorough knowledge of civil law, which I am constantly expanding, particularly in the fields of private international law and EU law. You can count on high quality legal services and an expert who will pay close attention to you and your legal problem. Your case is my priority. My client relationships are characterised by trust and respect, and I will seek the most optimal solution for your case. Corporate, family, employment and real estate matters are in good hands with me.

Legal services without limits.  

Legal matters do not stop at national borders, and neither do I. Counselling is available in international legal matters, cross-border family matters, private international law matters, foreign corporate transactions. I provide my foreign clients with a full range of legal services in English. I provide advice to Hungarians living abroad. My mind is open to the subtle differences between cultures and the practice of law, and my participation in the activity of several international organisations (IAFL, ERA, UIA) allows me a direct access to cutting edge researches and top leaders in all sectors of family law globally. If another country has jurisdiction in the case, I will refer my client to a trusted collegue after the consultation.


Advising with a strategic approach. 

You are looking for a solution to a specific problem. I am approaching the problem from a bird's eye view. This is how I can offer you innovative, tailor-made solutions that work in the long term. I am here to help you achieve your personal and business goals. In a CEO consultancy, I start by taking a close look at the company, trying to understand my clients' business philosophy, strategy and goals. I ensure that the company's legal affairs are comprehensively handled.


Alternative dispute resolution.

Conflicts arise. However, disputes can be costly to you, not only in a material sense but also in the potential damage to your reputation or to your family relationships. Alternative dispute resolution methods (such as conciliation, mediation, arbitration) can reduce costs and stress and you might be able to avoid litigation. Most of the disputes can be settled by a roundtable approach, so that in the end all parties feel like a winner. I facilitate this with my mediation experience.
