White & Case received the following awards from ITR:

Impact Deal of the Year: Accor Acquisition Company IPO
White & Case advised a banking syndicate composed of Goldman Sachs and BNP Paribas on the listing of Accor Acquisition Company, a SPAC sponsored by Accor, on the regulated market of Euronext Paris–the first-ever listing of a corporate SPAC in Europe.

Impact Deal of the Year: Hambro Perks Acquisition Company IPO
White & Case advised Hambro Perks Acquisition Company Limited (HPAC), a SPAC sponsored by Hambro Perks Ltd., on its £150 million initial IPO and admission to trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
