    The Chambers Europe Awards ceremony was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 7th April 2017.

    The awards honour the work of national and international law firms across Europe on the basis of research for the upcoming edition of Chambers Europe. They recognise a law firm’s pre-eminence in key countries in the region and reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service. COBALT, Ellex, Primus and Sorainen were the runners up in the category.

    Eversheds Sutherland has a team across the Baltics that has lawyers in integrated offices in Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. This is a unique legal service offering within the Baltic region, combining an in-depth knowledge of the region with a full spectrum of legal services.

    Among the noteworthy deals advised by Eversheds Sutherland’s Baltic offices were: providing cross-Baltic M&A support for Iron Mountain on an acquisition making it a major player in the region for storage and information management solutions; advice to AS Citadele banka on its €40 million unsecured bonds issuance, IPO and listing on the Riga Stock Exchange; and acting as advisor for RB Rail AS, a joint venture of Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian companies established as central co-ordinator for the €3.6 billion Rail Baltic/Rail Baltica high-speed rail project.

    Alan Murphy, Chairman of Eversheds Sutherland (Europe) says:

    "This is a wonderful acknowledgment that illustrates the breadth of international coverage and specialisms across the various regions in which Eversheds Sutherland operates. The quality of the work we do in the Baltic region is very high and we are glad this was recognised by the judges.”
