Experienced legal consultants
Eversheds Sutherland Consulting blends highly experienced consultants, lawyers, audit and risk professionals. Whether you are a major company or financial institution, we can help you deliver your strategic objectives, improve efficiency and navigate the increasingly complex regulatory and compliance challenges that you face.
Our consultants can also help you manage talent, embed a culture of compliance, provide interim resourcing solutions or deliver project/change management, allowing you to demonstrate real benefits to your business.
Our advisory services include:
In-house legal advisory – we work on transformational change projects and new operating models for legal functions. Our professionals also deal with smaller discrete products around technology for legal functions and on developing strategies to demonstrate how the legal department contributes to the overall success of the organization. We draw on the experience of legal professionals from specific practices across the wider law firm to support such projects.
Regulatory compliance – we have a financial services compliance team of experienced ex-regulatory, industry and consulting professionals. The team undertakes a range of work including assurance reviews, regulatory change project support, s166 reviews, outsourced and co-sourced compliance monitoring, compliance effectiveness and target operating models, advice on governance, conduct risk, treating customers fairly and past business reviews.
Additionally, our Corporate Risk consultants work across a wide range of sectors, advising on risk and compliance strategies, designing and implementing global frameworks (legal, risk and compliance), helping to develop ethical cultures and providing corporate risk training programs and e-learning.
Technology – we specialize in utilizing existing technologies to provide tailor–made solutions for legal teams of all sizes. Our Unity product is a matter and contract management application for Microsoft SharePoint, which provides in-house legal departments with the tools, processes and data they need to run effectively and efficiently.
HR consulting – having led HR functions in global organizations in many sectors prior to joining us, our HR consultants have the creativity and experience to help clients shape talent strategies, develop great leaders, implement transformational change and support employee relations challenges.
Eversheds Sutherland Agile – interim contractor services. Eversheds Sutherland Agile covers legal, compliance, HR and project management professionals. It is fully supported by the law firm, both in establishing the quality of our contractors and providing support while they are in place with our clients. We have a bench of more than 400 legal, compliance, HR and project management professionals.
Eversheds Sutherland Ignite – our managed service offering deals with high-volume, lower-risk work, non-contentious as well as contentious. In addition, clients benefit from enhanced management information and new technology to help manage risk and balance workloads. We offer a triage service where appropriate.
Remediation – in-depth know-how, combining people, process and technology to deliver effective managed services solutions for complaints and remediation projects. We adopt a partner-based approach and work closely with our clients to develop a clear understanding of what a good remediation project looks like. We make sure that we stand back from the problem, look carefully at the outcome of any investigations and consider the project objectives and timescales before making any decisions.
