Linklaters was named international firm of the year at last night's 17th annual IFLR European Awards. The firm performed strongly across the full spectrum of finance categories, with lead roles on three deals of the year. It also took home team awards.

The ceremony, hosted at The Savoy in London, celebrated the most innovative deals, teams, firms and in-house dealmakers from 2015.

Clifford Chance also had a hugely successful night, scooping the pool in the loan and private equity categories, and taking home four national firm of the year awards.

For the second year running, White & Case was named most innovative US firm in Europe and was another top performer, winning the most innovative US firm in Europe award after a particularly strong showing in high yield, loans and private equity.

IFLR continued with its two individual awards, recognising lawyers and regulators that have excelled in their respective fields. Georgina Philippou of the FCA and Iosco received the contribution to regulatory reform award. And Allen & Overy restructuring partner Mark Sterling was presented with the lifetime achievement award.

Congratulations to all the winners, the full list is below.
