Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton picked up the prestigious Americas firm of the year award at IFLR's 12th annual Americas awards last night.

The firm collected trophies for five winning deals and two team categories, debt and equity-linked and high yield, at the ceremony held at The Pierre New York.

Davis Polk was also celebrating after picking up equity and M&A team of the year, while White & Case came away with a double team award for project finance and restructuring. Elsewhere, Mayer Brown secured a consecutive win in the structured finance and securitisation team category.

Milbank won loan team of the year and Sullivan & Cromwell was awarded the coveted private equity team of the year. Skadden shrugged off a tough field to collect the financial regulatory award and the event also celebrated an array of national firm awards across the continent.

Paul Hastings partner and head of the Latin American practice Michael Fitzgerald was honoured with an individual award. He received the outstanding achievement award for his work in and commitment to advancing Latin America's capital markets over the past decade.

Deutsche Bank picked up in-house debt team of the year, while Bank of America Merrill Lynch won an impressive equity team of the year.
