Eversheds Sutherland – completion of the transition of its operations in Russia

  • Global


    Eversheds Sutherland (International) announces that it has completed the transition of its operations in Russia, in line with its previously announced intention to no longer have a presence in the country in response to the invasion of Ukraine.

    A new firm, Birch Legal, launches today with all the former Eversheds Sutherland lawyers and support staff transferring. Birch Legal will become Eversheds Sutherland’s relationship firm in Russia, servicing the needs of its international clients.

    Birch Legal will be led by Partner Mikhail Timonov and supported by Partner Yury Pugach, following the sad death of Partner Victoria Goldman last month.

    We wish the circumstances leading to the creation of Birch Legal were different, nonetheless we wish our friends and former colleagues in Russia well for their new endeavour.
