An audience of in-house and private practice lawyers gathered to celebrate their achievements from the last 12 months and to build lasting relationships for future projects and deals. Janet Adams of TSB Business Banking, a pre-eminent voice in artificial intelligence, delivered the keynote speech.

Among the leading winners were: Hogan Lovells, with eight wins; Allen & Overy, with seven wins; Herbert Smith Freehills, with six wins; and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer with five wins.
