    49-strong legal practice joins Eversheds Sutherland’s Europe team

    Eversheds Sutherland announced today that it has strengthened its position in the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic with the addition of leading law firm Dvorak Hager & Partners (DHP Legal).

    DHP Legal is a long-standing relationship firm of the global legal practice and this combination will enable Eversheds Sutherland to expand its offering in two new markets to its global clients.

    A highly regarded, full-service law firm, DHP Legal has 49 lawyers, including eight partners, advising clients on all aspects of commercial and corporate law, real estate, litigation and arbitration, and employment. The firm acts for a wide range of international clients based primarily in the UK, US, Germany, Austria and the Nordics as well as for major Czech and Slovak companies.

    This builds on Eversheds Sutherland’s recent growth programme in Europe which has seen the addition of new offices in Luxembourg, Russia and Germany in 2017 as well as the integration and development of its Netherlands operations earlier this year. The global legal practice now has 68 offices in 34 countries.

    Lee Ranson, CEO, Eversheds Sutherland (International) commented:

    “The continued expansion of our global platform is a key part of our strategy, and one which has gathered real momentum in Europe in the past year. The Czech and Slovak Republics are a natural fit for us as is DHP Legal, one of the region’s most highly regarded law firms. I am delighted to welcome our new colleagues to Eversheds Sutherland.”

    Ian Gray, Chair, Europe, Eversheds Sutherland commented:

    “We have been working closely with relationship firm DHP Legal for some time, and have grown closer over the last two years due to increasing client demand for services in Czech and Slovak, as the economies have strengthened. It is very attractive to clients to offer them additional legal resource in the CEE to complement our German and Russian practices. We are delighted to formalise our relationship with DHP Legal and look forward to an even closer relationship with them.” 

    Stanislav Dvorak, Managing Partner, DHP Legal commented:

    “Developing a deeper connection with Eversheds Sutherland is a natural evolution of our long-standing relationship. Our 49-strong legal team is looking forward to developing closer ties with the wider Eversheds Sutherland client roster as they look to grow their businesses in the CEE. Our ability to provide a seamless legal service to clients and Eversheds Sutherland colleagues will be a key factor in the continued success of our relationship.”
