WARSAW, September 15, 2020 - In the latest edition of the Euromoney Legal Media Group “Europe Women in Business Law Awards” Partner Agnieszka Stankiewicz was named “Best in Real Estate”. This award recognizes her as the best female lawyer in Europe specializing in real estate. This is the second title in the Greenberg Traurig Warsaw office, Jolanta Nowakowska-Zimoch, Head of the Warsaw Real Estate practice, won the title last year.
“I have always been a strong advocate for supporting women in the legal profession, so this recognition means a lot to me.

“The award for Agnieszka is well-deserved as she is one of top practitioners in the European real estate market, highly appreciated by clients. I am also very happy that for two years in a row, a Greenberg Traurig Warsaw partner has been recognized in the Best in Real Estate category. It is clear to me that if we want to see true change in women’s empowerment, we need to have more women in the professional legal services business. In my core real estate team, the majority of partners and attorneys are women and they actively support our firm’s initiatives for the inclusion of women in the legal profession,” said Jolanta Nowakowska-Zimoch.
