On December 1st, 2020 the best law firms were recognized by prestigious The Lawyer European Awards 2020. The award winners were selected in 27 categories by a very high-level panel of judges which includes managing partners of international law firms and in-house lawyers of multinational companies. The awards, now in their eleventh year, were the first of their kind to reward and celebrate excellence across the European legal market.

The Lawyer is one of the most prominent legal publications across the globe, and the key criteria upon which it assesses law firms in their annual awards are significant operational developments, pioneering referral, and cross-border work, diversity and employee training and development, plans to develop a long-term strategy and use of technology and improvement in processes and operations. It was the first time when the awards were held online because of the pandemic.
