IFLR’s awards celebrate innovation, novelty and complexity – whether structural or regulatory. This is not a quantitative survey of European transactions. It is not based on league tables or deal figures. To select the shortlist, IFLR’s editorial staff spoke with many lawyers and other professionals across the region. Both private practice and in-house counsel were interviewed, and the decisions taken by our editorial team were based on extensive research.

National firm awards are given to the firm with the best track record in 2016 giving local law advice on the most innovative cross-border deals – covering all award practice areas – from the country in question.

Arendt & Medernach had mandates on five transactions shortlisted for deal of the year.
