With the April 2023 issue of the magazine now out, it’s a good time to remind our readers that our February 2023 issue was a special one: the colorful, packed-to-the-gills CEELM Index 2022. It’s always been available to subscribers and non-subscribers alike and you can find it here in e-reader format and here in pdf. Our yearly Index issue aggregated all client matters we had covered in 2022 (and some that we had not), provided insights (and stats) into the work of law firms and lawyers across the region, and included a list of all the 2022 Deal of the Year submissions. Full contents below:
