Clifford Chance was named international law firm of the year at IFLR’s 19th annual European awards on April 19. The firm scooped up 10 awards in total across a wide array of practice areas including the debt- and equity-linked, loan, M&A, project finance and restructuring deals of the year, as well as team of the year for debt- and equity-linked and restructuring.

The ceremony, held at the Savoy in London, brought together the continent’s best legal talent to celebrate 2017’s most innovative cross-border European transactions, and the teams and firms that worked on them.

White & Case picked up the highly coveted most innovative US law firm in Europe award, while Linklaters, Allen & Overy, Weil Gotshal & Manges, Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft and Latham & Watkins all received team awards.

Meanwhile, Dr Kay Swinburne MEP was given the outstanding contribution to regulatory reform award for her work in European financial markets reform, most recently with Mifid II, and Dr Edith Hlawati, from Austrian law firm CHSH, was presented with the Lifetime achievement award.
