Allen & Overy was named IFLR's international law firm of the year at last night's 18th annual European awards. The firm scooped up eight awards in total across a broad array of practice areas, from structured finance and securitisation to loans and private equity.

The ceremony, at the Savoy in London, brought together the continent's best legal talent to celebrate 2016's most innovative deals, teams and firms.

Latham & Watkins picked up the highly coveted most innovative US firm in Europe title, while elsewhere Clifford Chance picked up four team of the year awards across financial regulation, loans, private equity and restructuring.

Meanwhile Simon Gleeson, also of Clifford Chance, was given an award for his contribution to regulatory reform, and ex-Linklaters partner Andrew Carmichael was presented with the lifetime achievement award.

Congratulations to all the winners. The full list is below.
