    CEE Legal Matters: Issue 3.6.


    As I write this editorial, we are celebrating three years since the CEE Legal Matters website (now already on its third version) first went online. To say that trying to think back and identify one major theme that shaped our last few years is difficult would be a real understatement, but because David has written up one too many of our recent editorials, that challenge falls on me.

    I will use a very broad brush and use the term “conservatisms,” which, in this editorial team’s view, have a considerable impact, not just on our endeavor, but the legal market as a whole.

  • We’re delighted to announce the arrival of the CEE 2016 Corporate Counsel Handbook, the leading annual report on best practices and strategic operations and preferences among Chief Legal Officers in Central and Eastern Europe. 

    This year's Corporate Counsel Handbook reflects the contributions of 594 General Counsel, Heads of Legal, and Legal Directors from across the CEE region, presenting the results of our annual survey alongside insightful and illustrative commentary from General Counsel taken from the pages of the CEE Legal Matters magazine’s "Inside Insight" section.

  • It’s not so much that we are over-ambitious in our planning as it is that the calendar is too small.

    We’ve found ourselves working a lot of overtime to prepare this issue, as – and if you don’t already know this then shame on you (or you’re a new reader, in which case welcome!) – it comes the same month as the second annual GC Summit, which just concluded a few weeks ago in Istanbul. If coordinating those two incredibly time-intensive commitments simultaneously wasn’t enough, we also spent untold hours migrating the content from the older (and wonderful) CEE Legal Matters website to the brand new (and even wonderfuller) site, we announced the 2017 Knowledge Partnerships, conducted an aggressive sales campaign, and put together our schedule and plan for 2017.

  • I’ve been thinking lately about the various audiences we write for (and who often write for us). At the simplest level, of course, we write for, and about, lawyers and the legal industry. We can refine that a bit: We write for business lawyers and the legal industry in Central and Eastern Europe.

    But then, quickly, like dough in the oven, that understanding begins to expand. 

    In fact, we write for three primary audiences: Domestic lawyers with law firms in each CEE country; Foreign and expatriate lawyers either within or outside CEE whose practices bring them into the region; and Senior in-house counsel directing the legal departments of major companies in the region.

  • Russia, it need not be said, is enormous. Russia is bigger than Pluto. Russia is huge.

    I lived in Russia from 1995-1998, first in a small community outside of Vladivostok – eight hours ahead of the country’s capital – and then in Moscow itself. I was able to experience the excesses and wonders of that chaotic period, and I left for law school in the United States just as the ruble collapsed and the country entered one of its darker periods...

  • "The current world record for completing a marathon run is held by Wilson Kipsang (2:03:23). Chuck Engle won the most marathons in history, coming in first in 171 races. 

    Marathons represent a commemoration of the fabled run of Pheidippides, a Greek soldier and messenger, who carried the news of the battle of Marathon to Athens. This month’s cover reflects our determination to go to considerable lengths in our efforts to inform our readers of relevant news and newsmakers from Central and Eastern Europe’s legal markets ... and we are in it for the long run!"

  • "The current world record for solving Erno Rubik’s famous Cube is 5.55 seconds. 

    Rubik’s Cube is not on the cover of the premiere issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine to illustrate concepts of puzzles or complexity (and no, not even because the magazine is based in Erno Rubik’s old home town). Instead, thinking about the Rubik’s Cube has us thinking about solutions and about the dedicated lawyers across Central and Eastern Europe who work with diligence and passion to solve their client’s needs and problems. We hope CEE Legal Matters will help in that process. Ultimately, we hope CEE Legal Matters helps provide solutions..."
