WARSAW, Poland (PRWEB) April 29, 2021
The Warsaw Office of Greenberg Traurig was awarded the prestigious International Financial Law Review (IFLR) Poland Firm of the Year at the highly esteemed IFLR Europe Awards 2021. The IFLR Europe 2021 Awards celebrate the most innovative law firms and transactions of 2020 and the winners were announced in a virtual ceremony held on 29 April 2021.
This marks the third time in the last four years that the Warsaw team has been recognized with this title by IFLR and the ninth time in total.
“Greenberg Traurig impressed in 2020 with its continued growth and forward-thinking initiatives in areas such as legal tech. The firm was also quick to react to the difficult environment, among other things launching a novel COVID-19 pro bono programme to support SMEs in Poland. This innovation was reflected in GT’s innovative transactional work, best exemplified by its role advising the large group of underwriters in the landmark Allegro IPO. The deal broke new ground in several ways, most notably by using a Luxembourg registered company and passporting the prospectus into Poland to list Allegro on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. In helping to bring Poland’s largest ever IPO to a successful end, the team also employed entirely new processes to cater for the restrictions of COVID-19,” said James Wilson, IFLR’s Commercial Editor.
Clients continue to praise Greenberg Traurig for its efforts citing “excellence”, “dedication”, “experience” and “very extensive knowledge” as key traits defining the Warsaw Office in 2020.
“Greenberg Traurig is honored to be selected as the 2021 IFLR Law Firm of the Year for Poland – this exceptional award affirms all of our efforts undertaken in such an unprecedented year. Winning would not have been possible without the trust of clients, dedication from our remarkable Warsaw team and continuous inspiration from the other nominees. We sincerely thank you and hope to see you all in person at next year’s IFLR Gala,” said Lejb Fogelman, Senior Partner of the Warsaw Office of Greenberg Traurig.
“With innovation becoming the key driver for the entire legal market – last year precisely showcased not only how we can adapt to new circumstances, but also thrive in this challenging environment. We continue to spearhead this process – providing excellent client service, while maintaining our focus on the safety of our team and clients. This has been Greenberg Traurig’s formula for success. While uncertainty is still present, I firmly believe in a positive outlook ahead. With such great recognition for 2020 from IFLR, we are looking forward to the future,” said Jarosław Grzesiak, Managing Partner of Greenberg Traurig in Poland.
