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.
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.
IFLR’s awards are distinct from others in the market as they focus on the law firms handling complex cross-border transactions.
