Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton’s London office had a standout year, or at least played a key role on a standout transaction when it advised Mittal Steel on its successful ?26.9bn (£18.16bn) acquisition of rival Arcelor.

Elsewhere, London lawyers featured on a string of IPOs, including Rosneft’s controversial £5.8bn listing in July and Italian oil refining company Saras’s ?2.1bn (£1.42bn) IPO in May.

The current year also got off to a flyer, with the firm bagging a lead role advising on the £4.43bn takeover offer by Airline Partners Australia for Qantas Airways.
