Eversheds Sutherland has decided that it will no longer have a presence in Russia

  • Finland

    11-03-2022

    Further to the firm’s statement of 4 March 2022, Eversheds Sutherland has decided that it will no longer have a presence in Russia.

    This decision has not been made lightly and is not a reflection on our valued colleagues in those offices, but we will not continue to operate in Russia given its government’s invasion of Ukraine. We will of course continue to advise our clients through this transition period in terms of existing matters in Russia.

    Our priority now is to support our 50 colleagues in Russia and to work together to ensure an orderly transition of the business in compliance with our professional obligations.

    As previously stated, we are not accepting new mandates from the Russian government or Russian state-controlled entities, whether subject to sanctions or otherwise.
