We are delighted to share that one of our 2022 deals, namely "GIC’s acquisition of 30% Stake in Cetin from PPF" was selected and awarded as the “Deal of the Year in the Czech Republic in 2022” on 25 April, 2023 at the CEE Legal Matters Deal of the Year Gala in Istanbul. LKT received the trophy for its work and involvement in the Hungarian aspects of the deal.
LKT won the “CEE Deal of the Year”, the “Deal of the Year in Bosnia” and the “Deal of the Year in Croatia” award for Hungary previously for 2021 for its work alongside Norton Rose Fulbright for Nomad Foods Acquisition of Fortenova's Frozen Food Business. In 2018, LKT won the “Deal of the Year in Hungary” award for its work alongside Slaughter & May on the Hungarian aspects of Vodafone’s acquisition of Liberty Global’s operations and for 2017 for its work on Waberer’s IPO and was shortlisted with various deals in each year throughout the 6 years history of the CEE LM Deal of the Year Awards.
Congratulations to Adam Mattyus, partner and Kornel Dirner, senior associate, who were advising on the Hungarian aspects of the winning deal and our congratulations also go to our colleagues at White & Case Prague, whose strong leadership led to the success of this great cross-border transaction.
