In fact, JLL was recently named The Best Real Estate Advisory Services Firm of the Year during the 3rd annual CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Awards. The Gala took place on February 6 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Warsaw gathering 275 executives from 21 countries across the CEE region, western Europe, Scandinavia, the United States and India.
