It's a crazy world. The global pandemic is taking the form of a whack-a-mole game, with numbers decreasing in some places, only to jump back up in others. School is starting, but perhaps the word should be in quotation marks. Travel is limited. Business is ongoing. Weather is cooling. Fortunately, in this tumultuous world, one thing is dependable. So relax: The new issue of CEE Legal Matters is here.
"Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose," right? Maybe not! Because this month's special issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine, out today, really is something different – it doubles as the launch of the new CEE In-House Matters publication.
We're distancing ourselves from many things these days. Friends. Colleagues. Clients. But for our subscribers, at least, one thing is coming right towards them, with the specific intention of defeating their attempts to stay away: Yes, the July 2020 issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine is on its way!
On May 18, 2020, bars in Budapest opened up for the first time in what feels like a lifetime. Sure, the perception of the lockdown’s duration is over-isolation-driven to a great extent, and I for one definitely do not miss the clamor of the all-too-common stag parties crawling in a drunken haze from one watering hole to the next that normally plagues downtown Budapest. While May 18 was still too early for the stags to be in town, the Jewish District – one of the city’s primary social neighborhoods – was brimming with people excited to finally have an opportunity to sit down in a bar and enjoy a cold one with friends, social distancing be dammed.
Confusing as it normally is, the fact that excited cries of "May Day! May Day!" can be interpreted, alternatively, as panicked calls for help, celebrations of spring, or demands for labor rights, today seems strangely appropriate. But fear not — a balm for frayed nerves has arrived in the form of the Special May 2020 issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine, focused extensively on the 2019 CEE Deal of the Year Award Winners, which is out today!
The bad news: We're all stuck inside. The good news: More time to read the new April 2020 issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine, out today!
