Allen & Overy’s India Group has won four IBLJ Deal of the Year Awards.
The India Group was commended for its work across a number of practices, and there was particular praise for its work on the first sustainability-linked bond issuance in India for Ultratech Cement. The Group was also recognised for its work on the leveraged buyout of Mphasis Limited, the acquisition of Piramal Glass – in which A&O advised the arrangers in respect of the acquisition financing – and Wipro’s acquisition of Capco, a UK-based IT consultancy firm. Three of the four awards were for transactions led by banking partner and Joint Managing Partner of Allen & Overy’s Singapore office, Gautam Narasimhan.
Sheila Ahuja, partner and Joint Chair of the India Group, said: “These awards demonstrate the depth and strength of knowledge across the India Group. We are very proud to be recognised as winners for our work on these key transactions.”
Pallavi Gopinath Aney, partner and Joint Chair of the India Group, added: “These awards are a testament to the hard work of our team, who help to make the India Group a highly successful practice. We look forward to continuing to work with our clients, who trust us to advise them on some of their most important matters.”
