We are proud to announce that COBALT has won the first ever CEE Legal Matters CEE Deal of the Year Award for Estonia at the Deal of the Year Awards Banquet in Prague on June 7 for its work on Providence Equity Partners' Acquisition of Baltic Subsidiaries of Swedish company Modern Times Group.
Finalists were selected by the first panel of highly-regarded private practitioners and, the winners were determined by the second group of prominent legal experts from across Central and Eastern Europe, evaluating submitted deals signed in the 2017 calendar year based on deal complexity, market (and regional) significance, and innovation. The awards were announced at the CEE Legal Matters Annual Banquet that concluded the June 7, 2019 Dealer’s Choice law firm conference at the Czech National Bank in Prague.
"To a real extent, the ability to make these important deals happen demands a unique combination of skill, passion, training, and commitment that the best lawyers in the region bring to their work every day," said CEE Legal Matters Executive Editor David Stuckey, who co-hosted the event with CEELM Managing Editor Radu Cotarcea.
