Finally, Dentons was awarded “Best international law firm for minority women lawyers” in recognition for its active LGBT affinity group and its support for women in diverse groups.
“Women make up over 40% of our lawyers and more than half of our employees overall within Europe, so empowering women professionals to achieve their full potential is essential to our success as a Firm,” said Tomasz Dąbrowski, CEO of Dentons Europe. “We are very proud of our women leaders and honored by these awards, which recognize our recent efforts to make Dentons an even more inclusive working environment.”
Winners of the Europe Women in Business Law Awards were selected based on submissions from law firms and research by editorial staff at International Financial Law Review, Managing IP, Expert Guides and International Tax Review. The awards bring together in-house and private practice lawyers to celebrate the achievements of law firms setting the standard in terms of female-friendly work practices, and women leading the field in over 30 legal practice areas across Europe.
