Loredana Chitu commented, “Thank you to CEE Legal Matters and the jury for selecting this IPO as the year’s highlight and a special thanks to the team at Hidroelectrica for giving us the opportunity to support them on this landmark deal. This was a true team effort and I take pride in accepting the award on behalf of my wonderful colleagues at Dentons. We are inspired to work hard and continue doing deals at this top level.”

The Firm also received the award for Deal of the Year in Slovakia for its work advising Plan B Investments on the €250 million acquisition of Trei Real Estate’s Czech and Slovak portfolio, which includes Billa and Penny Market supermarkets as well as retail parks across the two countries.  Prague-based partners Jiří Stržínek and Monika Kajanková led the cross-border team, supported by Tomáš Kvapil, David Šutko, Jan Blažek, and Jan Sedlák in Prague, as well as Miroslav Kapinaj, Dávid Stanek, Martin Mendel, Tatiana Jevčáková, Peter Panek, Alen Gondek, Norbert Vizvári, and Natália Hangáčová in Bratislava.
