CEE Legal Matters is delighted to announce that the 2021 Dealer's Choice International Law Firm Summit and annual CEE Deal of the Year Awards Banquet will be held on June 3, 2021 at the Honorable Artillery Company in London, England.
Although the 2020 events were postponed and then eventually canceled as a result of the Covid-19 crisis that has disrupted so much life and business around the world this year, we are looking forward to the 2021 events being among the first major conferences and celebrations of the international legal industry, and plan on turning the conference and annual banquet into a long overdue celebration of CEE.
The Dealer's Choice conference — the premier networking event and in-person information exchange for the legal industry in Central and Eastern Europe — will be co-hosted by Reed Smith and sponsored by the Pontes: the CEE Lawyers Alliance, Ukraine's Avellum Law Firm, Hungary's Nagy es Trocsanyi, Romania's Ijdelea & Mihailescu, Bulgaria's Kambourov & Partners, and Poland's Penteris Law Firm.
“We are thrilled to be sponsoring the event which will be marking the Year of the Renewal," said Andrzej Tokaj, Senior Partner at Penteris. "Now really is a time for us to come together as an industry and show some solidarity during the time of recovery in the region.” Mykola Stetsenko of Avellum agreed. “We definitely look forward to finally meeting in person with the best lawyers from the region after such a long break. This event will be especially interesting, since so many new trends have emerged after one and a half years of remote work and lockdowns across the globe.”
“The CEE Legal Matters Deal of the Year Awards awards are a celebration of success," said Victor Gugushev, Partner at Gugushev & Partners, a member of the Pontes: the CEE Lawyers alliance. "They measure our efforts during the year and recognize the complex character of our work. Being among the shortlisted is an honor, being a winner is a privilege.“
More information about the Dealer's Choice conference and Deal of the Year Awards Banquet will be available soon on the reactivated event website. More information about how to nominate 2020 deals for consideration for the Deal of the Year can be found here.
