International firm of the year

WINNER: Linklaters

Linklaters was rewarded for its outstanding performance across the board in Europe. The firm had wins in the structured finance, equity and private equity team categories, and was also present on the year's best debt and equity-linked, structured finance, equity, private equity and restructuring deals.

It was Linklaters' work for Lloyds that really stood out this year. The firm worked for the bank on its groundbreaking enhanced capital notes and also helped with its rights issue.

Linklaters also fielded multiple teams to help Source issue exchange-traded commodities while avoiding swap counterparty default risk and credit risk.
