The November issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine is, frankly, a little bit late. But good things take time, and trust us, this issue – our annual special Foreign Focus issue, focusing this time on the Rainbow Nation, South Africa – is a good one. And finally, finally, it’s out now!

Sure, this summer has been hot. There's no denying it. Sizzling. Too hot to enjoy. But now come the good times. Reasonable temperatures, nice breezes, and cool weather — perfect for grabbing a nice adult beverage, sitting on your deck or on the patio of your favorite watering hole, and reading the September 2019 issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine from front to back. We've done our part ... because the September 2019 issue is out now!

Sponsors of the 2020 Dealer’s Choice Law Firm Summit, which will be held on April 23, 2020 in conjunction with the Deal of the Year Awards Banquet, explain their involvement.

It is hot. Sitting in an oven in a wool sweater hot. Crawling through the desert in a ski suit hot. Chicken vindaloo extra spicy hot. What better way to escape the gruel of this sweaty summer than refreshing yourself with a new issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine? Well, happy days: The July 2019 issue is out now!

When George Gershwin wrote "Summertime, and the living is easy. Catfish are jumpin’, and the cotton is high,” he forgot the most important signifier of this wonderful season: The June issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine!

Things just keep getting better and better, don’t they? First, the Deal of the Year Awards Banquet in Budapest is a huge success. Spring, encouraged by those results, decides to make an early and aggressive appearance. Game of Thrones returns. Manchester United loses in the Champions League. Avengers: Endgame is suitably cool. Only one piece of the puzzle remains to make this a complete first third of the year: The publication of the May 2019 issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine!

"April showers bring May flowers," American children sing, but this year April also brings the annual special Corporate Counsel Handbook issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine! Thus, while keeping dry under their umbrellas, subscribers to the CEE Legal Matters magazine will be able to enjoy:

Allen & Overy and CMS were the big winners on Thursday night’s CEE Deal of the Year Awards Banquet in Budapest, with Allen & Overy taking home a remarkable ten awards on the night, including the award for Baltic Deal of the Year for its work on Blackstone Group’s acquisition of a majority stake in Luminor, and CMS taking home seven, including the 2018 CEE Deal of the Year for its work on Advent’s Acquisition of Zentiva from Sanofi.

In November 2014, at the conclusion of their publication’s first year of existence, the editors of CEE Legal Matters decided to celebrate by inviting a select number of legal experts from across CEE to join them in Vienna for dinner, drinks, and a rare Round Table conversation on the state of CEE’s legal markets. The event, which took place the next year in Prague, then in Warsaw, and then again in Prague, grew over time, with an ever-growing core group supplemented each year by new friends.

There are only 11 days left until the 2019 Deal of the Year Awards Banquet in Budapest — the largest annual gathering of law firms in Central and Eastern Europe. Tickets remain available for the March 28 event at the Budapest Marriott on the banks of the Danube, but time is running out.
