IFLR is pleased to release the deal and team shortlists for this year's Europe awards. The winners of these categories, as well as the national law firm of the year awards, will be announced at the ceremony on April 10 at the Dorchester in London.

Speaking at the event will be Linklaters' Lachlan Burn, who will collect the Lifetime Achievement Award. The Bank of England's executive director for financial stability, Andy Haldane, will also be recognised for his services to financial regulation as the winner of the regulatory contribution award.

This year we are pleased to reveal a new award – for financial regulatory team of the year. This will be presented to a firm that has demonstrated particular strength over the past 12 months in offering regulatory advice and services, and taken a lead role on policy input regarding the changing regulatory environment.

The shortlists and winners are based on months of research and recognise legal innovation. If your firm advised on a nominated deal but we do not have you listed, please email iflreditorial1@iflr.com

To reserve your table please email Melanie Petch at mpetch@euromoneyplc.com or +44 207 779 8836.

Congratulations to all the nominees, and we look forward to seeing you on the night.
