Lawyer Monthly - Women In Law Awards 2022

12 United Kingdom career there, to being where I am now by having worked hard to enjoy a successful corporate career. Running my own boutique business today is the icing on the cake. Is there a particular piece of advice that you would offer to anyone interested in the management of trading relationships? Do as much research as you can to make sure it is the right fit for you. It took me a long time to find the correct pathway for me and that involved working in various roles within the commercial litigation sector as well as representing clients on both the buy and sell side of financial negotiations. It is a very niche sector and one that requires a lot of dedication and hard work, as with all careers, but also one that is highly rewarding if you are committed. Communications and client relations are key in this sector, so speak to as many people connected to the industry as possible and take advantage of all the resources out there (including our Derivatives Lab) to arm yourself with as much information about trading relationships as possible, as jobs in this sector are highly competitive. Derivatives Lab is what I wish I had access to when I first started out in my career trying to get my head around the plethora of industry jargon. It sets out how things work in an uncomplicated style and is an invaluable source of material. Can you tell us anything about your plans for the future of FIT Legal Solutions and your other ventures? Expansion – FIT Legal Solutions and Derivatives Lab is still very much in its infant years of business but I am extremely proud of our growth over the past three years. Our team has expanded, we are collaborating with other consultants globally and soon we will be announcing exciting new partners and ventures. Do you have a particular creed or philosophy that informs your work? I think that now more than ever before, the horizon looks very appealing for women who are determined to succeed and who will show that in a flexible and dynamic working environment, they can achieve great things if they are passionate enough and work hard. It is time for other women to stop holding themselves back by what society has conditioned us to believe that we can or cannot do in our own careers and burst through that society-imposed glass ceiling. How do you measure your success and what does this award mean to you? I feel I have taken success to a completely new level by having won Women in Law’s Banking and Finance Lawyer of the Year Award for the second year running. To me success is not about status or quantity; it is about fostering relations and creating a life unique to me. It is a great success to have come from Poland with no real prospects of being able to achieve a Banking and Finance Lawyer of the Year “I think that now more than ever before, the horizon looks very appealing forwomenwho are determined to succeed”
