Did You Know that the ten firms that have worked on the most client matters reported by CEE Legal Matters through Q3 of 2023 are equally divided between international and regional powerhouses? According to the Activity Rankings function of the CEELMDirect website, Magic Circle-member Clifford Chance, which has worked on a remarkable 66 deals reported by CEE Legal Matters in the first nine months of 2023, leads the pack, but Vienna-based Schoenherr is close behind with 64.

Dentons is in third place with 58 completed CEELM-reported client matters, and Baltic champion Cobalt is in fourth with 55. CMS, which worked on 50 client matters reported by this publication through September of this year, rounds out the top five. 

Vienna-based Wolf Theiss, which worked on 44 CEELM-reported client matters through Q3 of 2023, is in sixth place, with Sorainen (with 37), Kinstellar (with 32), White & Case (with 30), and Allen & Overy (with 28) rounding out the top ten. 

Poland’s Gessel, which has worked on 20 CEELM-reported deals in the first nine months of 2023, is the first purely domestic law firm to appear in the rankings, at 17th.
