“Towering force” Pawel Debowski of Dentons to receive 2019 Lifetime Achievement award
It's not often that a single individual comes to exert a level of grip and influence on a market place as to dominate and, in some ways, define it. Pawel Debowski of Dentons joins a select band of real estate leaders and entrepreneurial empire builders of global and regional stature to receive the "New Europe" property sector's highest accolade. On paper a Polish-born, highly ranked corporate M&A and real estate lawyer, and a Partner and Chairman of European Real Estate at international law firm, Dentons, his role in the industry extends far beyond that description and few who really know and understand the sector would dispute that, today, he is the most influential figure in the CEE real estate market place, and probably its single most influential figure overall since the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989. We congratulate him on his achievements and look forward to presenting him with this year's award for Lifetime Achievement in Real Estate award at the 2019 CEEQA Gala.
CEEQA continues its path of strong growth in delivering a universally trusted industry awards and world-class gala event showcasing the sector to the international institutional arena. Deloitte continues its role as Lead Partner and awards supervisor in 2019, working alongside the CEEQA team to push the boundaries of integrity, fairness and quality.
