He is also Co-Chairman of Dentons’ Global Real Estate Group, where he is widely recognized as one of the leading real estate investment and property finance lawyers in Europe.

“Evan was part of the original team that came together to create Dentons and he is 100 percent committed to its success,” said Tomasz Dabrowski. “He has been a key driver of our growth here in Europe and has also contributed to advancing Dentons’ strategy around the world.”
Before Dentons was founded, Lazar co-chaired legacy firm Salans’ Global Real Estate Group. Prior to that, he founded the Central European Real Estate practice at Weil, Gotshal & Manges and was later Co-Chairman of their European Property and Finance group.
