    Eversheds Sutherland has strengthened its EU and competition practice with the strategic lateral hire of Partner Rod Lambert.

    Rod, who re-joins Eversheds Sutherland this week, will be based in the London and Brussels offices advising on antitrust and trade sanctions.

    Rod will support Eversheds Sutherland’s competition practice as it continues to deal with a high volume of client demand on aspects of EU law including merger control, cartel work and EU wide compliance instructions. Rod, who was a Partner at Eversheds Sutherland between 2000 and 2003, was also formerly co-chair of the Global Antitrust and Competition Group at Fulbright & Jaworski.

    Ros Kellaway, Head of Competition, EU and Trade commented:

    “I am delighted to welcome Rod back to Eversheds Sutherland’s competition team. His antitrust expertise will be crucial in ensuring that we continue to support our global clients with significant M&A activity going forward, particularly as they deal with challenges around Brexit. With Rod located in Brussels it will help ensure we maintain a strong European presence and keep up with client demand even after the UK leaves the EU. ”

    Rod Lambert, commented:

    “I am looking forward to returning to Eversheds Sutherland at an opportune time as its competition offering continues to go from strength to strength. With Brexit on the horizon, global clients need trusted advice more than ever before, specifically in relation to major corporate work involving EU filings.”
