For the Award Winners of the Decade, PDI look back at previous years to see who won the most awards in the main categories. Ashurst won Law Firm of the Year (Europe) in 2018 and 2019.

    Nick Goddard, practice head of investment funds at Ashurst, said: "It is fantastic to be recognised by PDI as European Law Firm of the Decade. We've had another outstanding year in our funds practice and this win is a real testament to the hard work of our team and the continued support of our clients."

    "The recent addition of partner Whitney Lutgen and promotion of Arnaud Julien earlier this year reflects our continued commitment to investing in our practice to further strengthen our client offering."
