CEE Legal Matters hosted a gathering of senior lawyers from each Central and Eastern European country identified by peers as being most influential, most important, most uniquely responsible for having created the country’s modern commercial legal market. They named Mr. Dragan Prelevic, Adriala’s network Montenegrin partner, as the market maker for Montenegro.
The Market Makers awards were conceived of and designed by the editors of CEE Legal Matters - the most widely-read source of news and information about the lawyers and legal markets of Central and Eastern Europe - who conducted the year-long research that led to the identification of the winners.
David Stuckey, Executive Editor of CEE Legal Matters, commented on the night’s events: “Having so many of the most influential, widely-recognized, highly-respected, and outrageously talented lawyers from across Central and Eastern Europe in one room was a special thrill. These lawyers did not just play a passive role in the transformation of their markets - to a large extent they made that transformation happen. In the course of our research in these 22 markets we discovered the Market Makers to be uniformly recognized for their intelligence, commercial instincts, business savvy, and commitment to the countries they live in. And, of course, their success and the reputation they’ve established over many decades is an obvious testament to their abilities, skill, dedication, and commitment to the highest standards of ethical advocacy. We were honored to have them join us last night, and proud to have brought them together for this one special evening.”
