2020 CEE Deals of the Year Submissions (All)

  • Default Helvetica Segoe Georgia Times

The CEE Deals of the Year Awards continue to grow in popularity, and by this, their fourth year, they have become a fundamental part of the commercial legal industry in Central and Eastern Europe, interwoven into the fabric of the year.

The importance of the awards was reflected both in the impressive profiles of the legal experts who agreed to review and judge all the submissions (see page 74), but also in the urgency with which firms labored to meet the deadline or begged permission to exceed it, and – sometimes – the emotion they put into their pleas that the eligibility criteria should be expanded.

Impressively, we received a total of 269 eligible submissions this year, from 95 different law firms, reflecting the work of a total of 278 law firms. Yes, this represents a slight drop – about 7% – from last year’s 288 submissions. But considering these deals were executed and these submissions made against the background of a year-long pandemic that put entire economies under pressure, under the circumstances … that’s remarkable.

The finalists for each country will be announced in the March 2021 issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine, and winners will be announced at the annual CEE Deals of the Year Awards Banquet scheduled – COVID-permitting – for June 3, 2021.

In the meantime, thank you to all who submitted deals. We appreciate the time and effort that you put into the process, and we – like you – are eager to see the results.

Good luck, one and all!
