NEW YORK, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Warsaw office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig Grzesiak sp.k. has been named "Poland Law Firm of the Year – International" by Chambers and Partners.

The firm and Fogelman received their awards at the 2013 Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence in London.

"This is an incredible success for our Warsaw office, which has been with us less than one year," said Richard A. Rosenbaum, CEO of Greenberg Traurig. "Our colleagues have shown courage, character, loyalty and a level of quality that makes us proud to have them with us. A special congratulations to Lejb for his individual award."

According to Chambers and Partners, the Awards for Excellence recognize "firms with outstanding performance over the last year."
