The research process for the 2018 IFLR Europe Awards is now live.

Deadlines and criteria

The deadline for submitting information to us is November 30 2017, so please get in touch as soon as possible if you wish to participate.
The submission deadline for deals that close after that date is January 11 2018
To be considered, deals must have closed in 2017. Deals that do not reach financial close before the end of December 2017 will not be eligible. 
The IFLR awards are based solely on legal innovation; we are interested in deals that break new legal ground and set market precedents. They are also exclusively for international deals; all those submitted must have a cross-border element.

Submission forms 

As in previous years, IFLR will be rewarding national firms of the year, financial regulation team of the year and the most legally innovative deals and teams in the following categories: debt and equity-linked; equity; loans, securitisation and structured finance; high yield; M&A; private equity; project finance; and restructuring.

We recommend that each firm submit no more than three deals in any one Deal of the year category, however you may submit for as many categories as you like. Firms should prioritise Deal of the year submissions over Team of the year submissions.

Please submit by completing the forms linked below and emailing them to james.wilson@legalmediagroup.com
