Jüri Raidla recognised as Market Maker in Estonia by CEE Legal Matters

On June 1, 2017, at a special awards ceremony at the InterContinental Hotel in Warsaw, Jüri Raidla was named the Market Maker for Estonia, a special lifetime achievement award given to the senior lawyer identified by peers as having played the most influential and significant role in creating the country’s modern commercial legal market.
 
The Market Makers awards were conceived of, designed, and presented by CEE Legal Matters — the most widely-read source of news and information about the lawyers and legal markets of Central and Eastern Europe — at the Gala Dinner of the CEE GC Summit, an annual two-day gathering of General Counsel and Heads of Legal from across the region. The editors of CEE Legal Matters conducted research across the region to identify the lawyers who would receive the Market Maker awards for each CEE country before inviting the recipients to the special ceremony in Warsaw.
 
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.”
