Allen & Overy won all four awards available to international law firms this week at the annual GlobalCapital Bond Awards, which took place as part of a gala dinner at London's Globe Theatre.

A&O picked up the prizes for Best Law Firm for SSA Bonds, Best Law Firm for FIG Bonds, Best Law Firm for Investment Grade Corporate Bonds and Best Law Firm for Emerging Market Bonds.

The clean sweep reflects Allen & Overy's position as the top legal adviser in the debt capital markets, having advised on more deals in 2016 than any other firm according to Thomson Reuters data.

Jonathan Melton, head of the general securities group in London, commented: "It's great to see that the market has recognised the fantastic job the whole A&O team has done over the last year. We will look to build on this great feedback and continue providing the level of service that the market has come to know us for." 

The GlobalCapital Bond Awards were attended by borrowers and bankers in the sovereign, supranational and agency (SSA), financial institutions group (FIG), corporate and emerging markets sectors and the award winners were chosen by the market participants.
