Swiss firm Niederer Kraft & Frey was crowned European law firm of the year at The Lawyer’s European Awards 2017.

This year’s glittering ceremony was held at The Grange St Paul’s hotel in London, attended by over 300 European managing partners, partners and in-house counsel.

A record-breaking eight in-house counsel and 125 firms and law firm networks networks were shortlisted for this year’s awards.

Among the 27 winners announced across international, European-wide and country-wide categories were A&L Goodbody, Jeantet, Vieira de Almeida, Wolf Theiss and Aequo.

This year’s winners are a force to be reckoned with, launching anything from internal innovation to daring international strategies. With enviable client lists and groundbreaking deals, these firms have shown the calibre of work in Europe in 2016.

But this year hasn’t just been about private practice – with Ericsson’s Nina Macpherson winning Global In-house Lawyer of the Year thanks to her versatility as a problem-solver and business partner.
