Helping you choose an outsourcing or strategic partnership lawyer

Any top law firm can dispense high quality legal advice. It’s the way we interact with our clients that sets us apart. But don’t just take our word for it – see below for a selection of client feedback.

“I think that clearly in going to a company like Eversheds Sutherland, it was almost a given that we were going to get good legal advice; and that was a baseline expectation. I think that where they exceeded my expectations was in the way that they worked with us. It was the way in which Eversheds Sutherland's people became part of the team and adapted to the culture of that team. It really felt like they were working alongside us in order to get to the end result that we needed.” Director of Business Transformation, local authority client

“They went the extra mile: whatever we asked them] to do, [they] would do it. It was not just advice, but [they] also produced the goods. [They] produced some fantastic quality outputs in a short period of time.” Project Lead, non-executive government agency client

“The team were excellent. They helped close a project which was particularly challenging and had to deal with resistance from all quarters. There was no drop off in the quality of work even when handed over to colleagues to provide holiday cover. The whole team were always diligent and thorough in their work.” Project Lead, private sector client bidding for public sector contract
