As autumn has arrived, we can confirm that we have been slightly FALLing behind. It is true that in the world of publishing, timing can be everything. But even more so, if there is a touch of dramatic flair as a result of a slight not-worth-to-be-mentioned one-month delay. So, if you have ever found yourself curious about the broader statistical landscape of legal professionals in the CEE region – the size of the legal market and its level of saturation, gender breakdown among legal practitioners, etc. – we proudly announce that our belated CEE by the Numbers 2023 special issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine is now published, and stay tuned for the upcoming release of our October issue this week!
The data-driven biennial CEE by the Numbers report compiles and presents information regarding over 1,100 law firms of CEE. This marks our fourth edition, with the inaugural report released in April 2014 as part of our special Glass CEEling issue, followed by the second, third, and fourth editions as standalone reports in 2017, 2019, and 2021. Similar to the previous issues, this report not only provides details about the size and gender distribution within the top law firms in the region but also offers readers the ability to monitor and measure the changes (be it growth or decline) in these figures over past years.
