    Eversheds Sutherland and Mills & Reeve appointed as ODEON’s main legal advisors

    Eversheds Sutherland and Mills & Reeve have been appointed to ODEON Cinemas Group Ltd’s (ODEON) preferred law firms for its UKI business.

    As part of a regular review of ODEON’s current support, it was decided to reduce ODEON’s preferred firms from over 10 firms to 3 firms. This decision was taken in order to streamline processes, gain cost efficiencies and support the on-going development of a cohesive legal and compliance framework for the business.

    Following a competitive process, Eversheds Sutherland and Mills & Reeve won a place alongside each other on the full-service legal panel, for an initial term of two years. Shoosmiths were also appointed on a limited basis for specific corporate requirements. 

    Iftkhar Ahmed, Real Estate Partner at Eversheds Sutherland, commented:

    “We’re really pleased to be appointed to ODEON’s full-service panel, and it is a credit to the team’s strength and depth in the UK and Ireland. We look forward to working with ODEON across all its legal matters during the entire term of the panel.”

    Chris Thomas, ODEON Group Chief Legal & Compliance Officer, said:

    “The appointment of Eversheds and Mills & Reeves is a positive step on our journey as a legal team. The knowledge and expertise of these firms, working alongside Shoosmiths, not only adds to, but also compliments, that of our in-house legal team. We look forwards to delivering the best results for our business, colleagues and our Guests.”
