    Eversheds Sutherland (International) announced today that it has strengthened its position in the Netherlands through its acquisition of Dutch firm Eversheds Sutherland B.V.  Having been a member of Eversheds Sutherland (Europe) for ten years, the Dutch offices are now formally part of Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP and will be known as Eversheds Sutherland Netherlands.

    Eversheds Sutherland Netherlands has offices in Amsterdam and Rotterdam and is a full-service offering with eight partners and 32 lawyers (including a notarial department). It represents both large and small corporates operating nationally and internationally. It also acts for government bodies, public authorities and non-profit organizations.

    Today’s announcement follows a similar move by Eversheds Sutherland in Germany in 2015.  The firm opened its fourth office in Germany in August 2017.

    It also completes a 12 month period of significant growth including the following key milestones:

    • 1 February     Combination between Eversheds and Sutherland Asbill & Brennan goes live
    • 1 June           Merger with Harry Elias Partners in Singapore and Brunei Darussalam goes live
    • 1 August        Dusseldorf office launches
    • 6 September  Luxembourg, Moscow and St Petersburg offices launch

    Lee Ranson, CEO, commented, “Developing in key jurisdictions is a core part of our global strategy and this move allows us to prioritise investment in a market which is of increasing importance for both our International and US clients.  We have worked closely with our Dutch partners for more than 10 years and are wholly aligned in terms of our vision for the future of the firm and our culture.”

    Paul Goedvolk, Managing Partner Eversheds Sutherland Netherlands, added, “This move makes perfect sense for us and our clients in the Netherlands, who are becoming increasingly active globally.  The tie-up in the US and the progress the firm has made around the world last year makes the timing ideal.  We believe it will not only enhance investment but also open opportunities to our people.”
