Weil’s London Tax Team Recognized Twice at ITR’s European Tax Awards 2020

Weil has been recognized at the Euromoney International Tax Review’s European Tax Awards 2020, held last night by Webinar for the first time since the awards’ inception, for its role on ground-breaking, high-profile tax disputes and for leading the tax aspects of significant European private equity deals. The awards, which are judged on size, innovation and client impact, cover 2019 European matters.

The Firm received two prestigious awards: Impact Deal of the Year for Belmond’s $3.2 billion sale to LVMH, and Impact Deal of the Year for Nexi’s $2.3 billion IPO on the Borsa Italiana.

The Tax Impact Deal of the Year awards follow last year’s success at the Tolley’s Taxation Awards, for which we were also a finalist in the Best Corporate Tax Practice category at last month’s 2020 Awards, and recognizes our work acting on a number of high-profile, precedent-setting cases, including syncreon Group B.V.’s landmark Chapter 11 restructuring with parallel U.K. Scheme of Arrangement, which received Court recognition in September 2019.

The team’s other achievements, thought leadership and summaries of their award winning deals can be viewed on the Weil Tax Blog.
