Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, received eight awards at the ninth annual Europe Women in Business Law Awards, organized by the Euromoney Legal Media Group. The awards recognize the top women business lawyers and in-house counsel from across Europe, as well as the best firms for women in the legal profession.
Paris-based partner Sandra Hazan, Co-head of Dentons’ Global and Europe Tax groups, and a member of the Europe Board, received the award for “Best in Tax”. This award adds to her recognition as a leading tax lawyer in directories such as Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500 and International Tax Review.
“I strongly believe that women professionals should support and encourage each other, so I am truly honored by this recognition from my respected peers,” said Sandra Hazan. “This award is also a testament to the growth of our Europe Tax practice, which has doubled in revenue over the last three years.”
Dentons was recognized as the best law firm for women lawyers in France, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Romania and Kazakhstan. Balcıoğlu Selçuk Akman Keki Attorney Partnership (BASEAK) the Istanbul-based law firm that cooperates with Dentons in Turkey, was also named Best in Turkey.
Finally, the Firm received the award for “Best international mentoring program” for the fourth year in a row for its senior development program, which helps develop leadership skills among high potential lawyers.
Tomasz Dąbrowski, CEO of Dentons Europe, commented, “The advancement of women professionals is high on our leadership’s agenda, and we will continue to focus on developing current and future women leaders within our Firm. We are truly delighted to be recognized as a leading employer for women in the legal profession.”
