Lane Powell is proud to announce that Lisa Poplawski, Shareholder and Corporate Attorney, has been awarded a highly distinguished “Forty Under 40” award by the Portland Business Journal.
The award is given annually to 40 young professionals under the age of 40, in recognition of their outstanding leadership and compelling community involvement in the Portland and SW Washington area.
Poplawski is a leading lawyer at Lane Powell and a key contributor in corporate, mergers and acquisitions, and aviation matters that help shape the Pacific Northwest. Eager to further the advancement of women and marginalized groups in the legal industry, she co-chairs both the firm’s Women’s Initiative and Transactional Associate Practice Team. Poplawski was also recently selected for the Leadership Council for Legal Diversity Fellows Program, serves on the board of the Lewis & Clark Law School Center for Business Law and Innovation, and previously taught as a barre3 instructor promoting wellness.
Through her successful leadership and strong dedication to the empowerment of diversity and wellness in the legal field, Poplawski has become a standout member of the firm and of the Pacific Northwest business community.
“I’m honored to be named to this year’s 40 Under 40 list and humbled to be included alongside so many accomplished and driven professionals,” Poplawski says. “I can’t wait to get to know this year’s class better and be inspired by their vision for community and leadership in Portland and the Pacific Northwest.”
“Lisa is a wonderful choice for the ‘Forty Under 40’ Award,” shared Lane Powell Vice President Tom Sondag. “Not only is she an exceptional and highly skilled attorney, but she’s also actively involved in and committed to our local community. Lisa is a natural leader, which was evident the day she started at the firm.”
Poplawski earned her J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley School of Law and her B.S., summa cum laude, from the University of Oregon. Prior to joining Lane Powell, she served as a Legal Clerk for the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office.
