Thank you for your interest in sharing your news with CEE Legal Matters. Below is an outline of what stories we cover, how we cover them, and our general editorial policies:
CEE Legal Matters Website News Coverage Focuses on:
1. Concluded client matters (deals, disputes, and general advisory work)
- There is no minimum deal value for us to report on a deal
- Clients must be identified by name
2. Partner or Head of Practice Promotions or Lateral Hires
3. Appointments of significance
4. On rare occasions, other matters we deem to be of extraordinary significance
5. Note: We *do not* cover awards or rankings.
How to Share Your News:
1. We welcome both formal press releases and other less formal summaries informing us of relevant news
3. While we do our best to process releases in other languages, we greatly appreciate English language notifications. If one is not available, we may follow-up for clarifications/details.
4. We greatly appreciate readers informing us of developments of significance that do not relate to their firms directly. Such news can be sent to us via either of the two options identified above. Please note that sources will not be identified without their express permission, and that we will obtain formal confirmation of any such information from appropriate individuals prior to publishing.
CEE Legal Matters News Coverage Methodology:
1. We *do not* simply publish firm press releases — rather, we write our own articles using the information provided.
2. Once we receive an update or a press release we may follow-up with a request for further information. Common requests include:
- Potential clarifications related to specific details of a deal
- Where applicable, what other firms were involved on a matter
- Details related to the composition of your team advising on a deal
3. We reach out to other firms involved and request a confirmation of their involvement and the composition of their team.
4. When we publish the story we aim to identify in the headline all firms that have confirmed their involvement if space allows for it. We prioritize identifying the firm which first notifies us of a deal.
Our 24 Hour Response Policy:
1. Because we are a news agency, we endeavor to move quickly on publishing developments.
2. If a request for additional details generates no response within 24 hours, we will include a note that the firm did not respond to our request to the story. Similarly, if a firm declines to provide additional information, we will inform our readers of that along with any explanation provided.
3. If a request for confirmation from a firm that it was involved in a deal generates no response within 24 hours, we will not include the firm in the article headline. If the firm responds at a later date, we may update the story itself — though not the headline.
Our Article Deletion/Modification Policy:
1. We *can not* delete published articles based on press releases.
2. We do not make changes to our articles unless factual errors are found within them. If there is a factual error, we will update the body of the article and highlight the initial error in an editorial note.
3. We welcome information about a particular story, whether it be information about factual errors or information about details that were not included in the original article (such as information about additional firms involved). Please contact us at either of the two addresses provided above.
