On the evening of February 1, 2017, CEE Legal Matters hosted the first ever CEELM Budapest Law Firm Bowling Challenge: A competition of four-person teams from leading law firms in Hungary, with all proceeds to go to the winner’s charity of choice. A total of 13 law firms competed for the impressive trophy – and the glory that goes along with it.

Ultimately, after several hours of grueling and demanding competition, CMS slipped past second-place Szecsenyi and Partners by a small margin to achieve the highest total score – 852 – and claim the trophy. As a result, CMS-nominated Red Nose Clown Doctors Foundation in Hungary will receive the EUR 2,400 raised during the evening, with the donation made in the name of CMS and all the law firms attending the challenge. "CMS has been supporting the Red Noses Foundation for long years. Simply all of our colleagues stand for the foundation’s goals and activities and we try to take every opportunity to contribute and bring a bit more laughter to children hospitals or nursing homes," said Katalin Kovacs of CMS to explain their pick.

In addition to CMS and Szecsenyi and Partners, participants included teams from Allen & Overy; Dentons; DLA Piper; Gardos, Furedi, Mosonyi, Tomori; Hogan Lovells; Jeantet; KNP Law; Nagy & Trocsanyi; Lakatos, Koves & Partners; Orban & Perlaki Attorneys; and Schoenherr.

Among women, Zsuzsanna Gordos from Jeantet recorded the highest one-game total, with 115 points, while the highest score by a man, of 152, was recorded by Miklos Horvath from DLA Piper.

This was a great night of laughter, competition, and good fun, all for a good cause. We are grateful for all the teams for their support and enthusiasm to make this initiative happen.
