2022 Deal of the Year Submission
Please complete the fields below for *each* deal being submitted.
Starting this year, we're introducing a rolling system of CEE Deal of the Year submissions to help firms avoid the stress of end-of-the-year deadlines. The cap of three submissions per firm per jurisdiction remains, so we will reach out at the end of the year to any firms that have submitted more than that and ask them to pick which three of the submitted deals they'd like to put forward.

Important Update From Previous DOTYs
As opposed to previous years, the eligibility of deals will be determined based on the date of
closing, not of signing
. Only deals that were
between January 1 and December 31, 2022 will be considered, without exception. Because of this change, some deals that were submitted for previous editions of the DOTYs might be eligible this year because of their closing, rather than signing date but deals that won a previous edition of the DOTYs are
eligible again for the jurisdiction(s) for which it was awarded the DOTY in the past. The full list of past winning deals is
Country for Consideration
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Please choose one. Separate submissions are required for each country to be considered.
Simple Name of Deal
Please identify all parties by name – both buyer and seller, or both borrower or lender, for example, where applicable – and the kind of transaction. Do NOT explain the deal here or add information about its size, significance, or impact. If it’s an acquisition or sale, please list the buyer’s name first. Examples might be “Ukraine Eurobond Issue” or “CVC Capital’s Acquisition of Zabka Polska from Mid-Europa.” Please note: Financings are considered part of acquisitions, even if negotiated separately. Firms that worked only on the financing part of the deal should nonetheless identify the deal by the names of the acquiring and selling entities, with an explanation of financing aspects and their role provided separately, below.

Name of Submitting Firm’s Client:
Other Law Firms Involved, on all sides of deal, and their roles and clients:
Just law firms.
individual lawyers, not financial advisors. We only want to know which law firms were involved, and for which clients. Where applicable, please include firms advising on financing, even if they did not work on the underlying transaction itself.
If you represented a buyer on a transaction, you *must* identify the advisor of the seller, and vice-versa (e.g., “X advised the seller”)
If you represented a borrower on a financing, you *must* identify the advisor of the lender, and vice-versa (e.g., “X advised the lender”)
If you advised only on local aspects of a larger regional or global deal, you *must* identify the firms acting as global advisors, and vice-versa (e.g., “Firm A acted as the global counsel for party B; Firm C acted as the global counsel for party D”)
If the counter-party relied strictly on its in-house team please note that (e.g., “X relied on its in-house team”)
Why Should This Deal be Considered for the Deal of the Year Award:
No more than 400 words. Useful information can include deal value and significance to the domestic market and the region as a whole, complexity, the existence of novel or innovative aspects or tools, etc. This is where you get to speak to the judges, explaining not simply the details of the deal, but summarizing media coverage, or giving useful additional information like “this was the largest bond issuance in the history of the country.” If it’s not here … the panel may not know about it.
