The Financial Times recognized Gibson Dunn at the Europe Innovative Lawyer Awards 2023. The firm was selected as overall winner in the Responsible Business category for our work securing the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe from illegal detention in Iran. The firm was also recommended in the Private Capital category for our work advising KKR on its purchase of a minority stake in the fiber network spin-off of Telenor, and in connection with our work on behalf of a German client that was seeking to sell to a private equity buyer, in which our lawyers cut the time required to draft the legal “fact book” from weeks to three days. In addition, the firm was also recognized in the Supporting Refugees and Migrants category as part of the Afghan Pro Bono Initiative. The awards were presented on September 21, 2023.
