Speaking about the award Lina Nemchenko said:
"It is a great honor to be the first lawyer from Ukraine to ever receive an individual award at the Euromoney European Women in Business Law Awards in real estate. But it is not just being a good lawyer that made this possible, I would never have received this award without the very hard work of my fellow lawyers in Baker McKenzie Kyiv."
Baker McKenzie was also recognized as Best International Firm for Women in Business Law and received the prize for most innovative law firm.
Euromoney European Women in Business Law Awards recognize female lawyers who are influential and leading professionals in their chosen field, and firms that have shown outstanding achievement in supporting the development of women in the legal profession across different continents.
