The awards cover the legal world across 20 practice areas in 19 European countries. The inaugural Europe Awards were presented at a ceremony at the Bulgari Hotel in London on 7 November.
Lyn joined the William Fry banking and finance group as a partner early this year, having worked previously with international firm Milbank in New York.
She advises global financial institutions, private equity firms, and corporate clients on a range of domestic and international financial transactions.
Ruairí Rynn is a partner in the firm's litigation and dispute-resolution department and corporate restructuring and insolvency group, with expertise in commercial litigation, insolvency and corporate restructurings. He has been a partner since May 2018.
Congratulating the award winners, Bryan Bourke (managing partner, William Fry) said: “I am delighted to see Lyn and Ruairí receive recognition at an event identifying the finest young lawyers in Europe.
“At William Fry, we are constantly striving to develop, attract, and retain the best legal talent so we can continue to provide our clients with the highest level of professional service and legal knowledge."
