The best female lawyers from across the continent congregated at The London Hilton Hotel on Park Lane last night to celebrate Euromoney Legal Media Group's fourth annual Europe Women in Business Law Awards.

Caroline Carr, the EMEA head of Talent Development at Goldman Sachs, gave the keynote speech to an audience of in-house and private practice attorneys who had gathered to celebrate the achievements of those firms setting the standard in terms of female-friendly work practices, and women leading the field in the legal sector across Europe.

In other international categories, Baker & McKenzie collected the award for most innovative firm, Sidley Austin was named the best firm for work-life balance, White & Case was rewarded for the best mentoring program and DLA Piper picked up the award for best gender diversity initiative by an international firm.
