Essentials

The IFLR awards are all about legal innovation that improves the investment environment.

All deals must have closed in 2021 to be included in the research and all deals must meet the awards' cross-border criteria. We recommend that law firms and in-house legal teams nominate no more than three in any one Deal of the year category using the forms provided above.

IFLR Awards are based solely on legal innovation, focusing on deals that break new legal ground, set precedents, and develop the legal environment for cross-border corporate finance. When searching for innovation, IFLR looks for new legal structures, deals that overcome new regulatory hurdles and regional firsts that adapt existing technology to local markets. The difficulty and intricacy of that innovation is assessed, as well as its likely market impact.

The deals form the basis of the team and firm awards.

ESG is important to IFLR and the awards strive to recognise legal innovation that supports high ESG standards across all categories.
