Did You Know that, according to the Activity Rankings function of the CEELMDirect website, Clifford Chance with four, and Allen & Overy with two, are the only firms in the Czech Republic that have worked on more than one reported Banking/Finance deal so far this year?

Six other firms have worked on one Banking/Finance deal each: BBH, CMS, Deloitte Legal, Dentons, DLA Piper, and Kocian Solc Balastik.

Of course, there is substantial overlap in these deals, with multiple firms working on each. One recent example is the EUR 137.5 million loan by a club of lenders including Komercni Banka, Ceska Sporitelna, and Raiffeisenbank to the Accolade group for the construction of an Amazon automated distribution center, on which both Clifford Chance and Allen & Overy advised (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on May 25, 2022). Another recent example is UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia’s refinancing of the existing financial indebtedness of the Mattoni 1873 group, which both Clifford Chance and Kocian Solc Balastik worked on (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on May 30, 2022).
