Eversheds Sutherland awarded Law firm of the Year at the Legal Business Awards 2020

  • Belgium


    From the Law Firm of the Year accolade, we read that Eversheds Sutherland emerged as a clear winner. “Not only was the firm successful commercially, turning in strong financials and pointing to a number of major new client wins and panel reappointments for global giants, but it has also made a difficult transatlantic merger work under strong leadership; completed a strategic masterstroke with the spin-off of its alternative legal services arm; bolstered its ranks with some prominent lateral hires; and nailed its colours to the mast with firm targets for ethnic diversity.”

    Stefan Corbanie, Partner at Eversheds Sutherland Belgium and Director at Eversheds Sutherland International, explains what the award means for the Belgian activities:

    "This prestigious international recognition for the firm will reflect on our local activities in Belgium. There are many law firms in the world, but very few like ours. Eversheds Sutherland has consistently been at the forefront of changes in the legal profession as one of the most progressive, forward-thinking practices around. Our success is due to the efforts of our people. We aim to recruit, train and retain the best. This award will help to attract new talent for our Brussels practice.”

    Koen Devos, Partner at Eversheds Sutherland Belgium and Head of the corporate commercial team in Brussels, said:

    “Eversheds Sutherland also took the opportunity to take responsibility for promoting diversity. To make our firm a great place to work and a positive agent for change, we take diversity and inclusion very seriously. Building a culture which is inclusive of everyone, where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work and where everyone can thrive, is crucial to us.”
