Clifford Chance is proud to have battled off four other shortlisted contenders to be awarded Best Provider Collaboration at the American Lawyer 2020 Industry Awards, which honour outstanding achievements in the legal profession.

This recognition is testament to a hugely collaborative effort on the Airbus international settlement, alongside the Forensic Risk Alliance, Paul Hastings, Dechert LLP, August Debouzy, Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP and Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP.

Thomas Baudesson, a White-Collar Crime partner in Paris commented: "We are delighted with this recognition by the American Lawyer. This win truly captures how efficiently our team has worked with other peer firms to assist Airbus in the achievement of a global settlement. Winning this award is a testament to the time and effort our lawyers have invested in delivering the very best advice to our client on an extremely complex and unprecedented cross-border investigation."

This win reinforces Clifford Chance's reputation as a leading law firm for complex global investigations and highlights, in particular, the significant experience of our white-collar team in Paris who played a strategic lead role in this unprecedented case.
