Allen & Overy was named International Law Firm of the Year at the IFLR European awards held on Wednesday, April 10 2013 in London.
The firm worked on three deals of the year: the Greek PSI (pictured), the Seat Pagine Gialle restructure, and Providence’s acquisition of HSE24.
“I congratulate Allen & Overy for their ground-breaking work on European transactions throughout 2012,” said IFLR’s managing editor Lucy McNulty.
Linklaters was another big winner, picking up three team of the year awards, while Clifford Chance won the inaugural financial regulation team of the year.
Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton was named most innovative US law firm in Europe.
The IFLR European awards are organized by International Financial Law Review, the magazine focused on legal issues in the corporate finance world, and celebrate firms active on the most innovative deals.
Winners were announced at a 330-strong event hosted at the Dorchester Hotel.

Every Spring the IFLR holds its annual awards series.
The European leg of the tour follows the recent IFLR Americas Awards and IFLR Asia Awards.
IFLR’s awards are distinct from others in the market as they focus on the law firms handling complex cross-border transactions.
