Polish real estate lawyer Janusz Dzianachowski will be promoted to Partner by Linklaters as part of its global promotions round.
Dzianachowski, whose promotion from Managing Association will take effect on May 1, 2017, is one of the 26 lawyers promoted to Partner in 13 jurisdictions around the world by Linklaters, though the only one from CEE. Only five of the lawyers promoted to Partner are women.
Charlie Jacobs, Senior Partner at Linklaters, said: “The exceptional quality of today’s newly elected Partners reflects our commitment to attracting, retaining and promoting the most talented lawyers in jurisdictions and practices around the world. As excited as we are by today’s announcement, we are disappointed that we have failed to reach our target for female partners in this year’s election. We remain absolutely committed to this important goal and acknowledge that despite firm-wide progress on diversity, we must and will strive to do better.”
Dzianachowski, who has more than 13 years of experience, joined Linklaters in July 2005. Among the deals he has worked on are a number for CBRE Global Investors, including its 2014 acquisitions of the Galeria Mazovia shopping center in Plock, Poland, and of the Ideal Idea logistic complex near Warsaw's Chopin airport (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on June 18, 2014 and December 12, 2014, respectively), its 2015 acquisition of the Galeria Sfera shopping center in Bielsko-Biala (as reported on December 10, 2015), and its 2016 acquisition of the Jantar shopping center in Slupsk (as reported on May 6, 2016).
