The managing partner of a long-established law firm has been recognised at an awards ceremony celebrating inspirational women.
Jennifer Grabowski, 41, of Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand, was the winner of the Women in Law category at the prestigious She Inspires Awards.
In their commendation, judges said: “Jennifer is the managing partner of a law firm that is over 200 years old. She is also a full-time corporate and commercial solicitor, working with local and regional businesses looking to buy, sell, grow or just protect their business.
“A mother-of-three, she tries to lead by example to show that it is possible to have both a family and a career to be proud of.”
Jennifer received her award from former Emmerdale actor and 2019 Strictly Come Dancing winner Kelvin Fletcher.
“I was delighted to win the award,” said Jennifer, who is married and lives at Lancaster. “It is very nice to be recognised, although I am slightly embarrassed by the attention.”
She added: “I hope it will send out a positive message to the large number of young women in the profession – to remind them that you can achieve something meaningful without having to change who you are.”
Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand employs around 60 staff at its offices in Kirkby Lonsdale and Lancaster.
