Clifford Chance has advised, pro bono, a joint venture entity including Dennik N, the Independent Press Foundation, the Aegis Foundation, and the Respekt editorial team on the acquisition of the Respekt Magazine in the Czech Republic.
According to Clifford Chance, “this deal carries exceptional importance, not only due to its commercial aspects but also for the commitment to pro bono work that underlies it. Respekt is an independent weekly magazine that offers insightful commentary on current events in domestic and international politics and economics. Since 1989, it has been a continuous source of information, covering politics, economics, history, social issues, trends, and closely following advancements in science and research. The magazine also places significant emphasis on cultural topics and enjoys contributions from numerous prominent figures.”
The Clifford Chance team included Partner Emil Holub, Associate Ondrej Dolensky, and Junior Lawyers Jiri Krejca and Simon Vanek.
Clifford Chance could not provide additional information on the matter.
