Rúben started his legal career in 2004, at the market-leader insurance company Allianz Hungária, as a legal counsel. During these early years, he gained specific sectoral experience which provides him with a better understanding of the industry. Apart from being a legal counsel, he was an instructor and examiner at Insurance Educational Institute for 4 years. Rúben is an experienced litigator, while he also believes in alternative dispute resolution mechanisms too. Despite that alternative dispute resolution is not common in Hungary, Rúben has significant ADR experience as he was a chairman of the Financial Arbitration Board organized within the Hungarian Supervisory Authority (later the National Bank of Hungary) from 2011 to 2014. He is also experienced in tort law, contract law, law of insurance intermediaries, civil procedural law and consumer protection law. Besides his job at Gárdos Mosonyi Tomori Law Office, he is a lecturer at the Financial Law Academy organized by the Financial Arbitration Board and the Budapest Institute of Banking. He was honoured to contribute as a co-author to the Commentary on the Hungarian Civil Code [Budapest, 2014, published by Menedzser Praxis Kft.] and the Commentary on the Insurance Act (Hungarian Insurance Supervisory Law) [Budapest, 2018, published by Wolters Kluwer] which is the fundamental source for insurance law practitioners in Hungary. Rúben is the author of numerous articles in the subject of insurance law.
