    Eversheds Sutherland welcomes M&A partner Jon Gill to its Corporate practice

    Eversheds Sutherland has appointed Jon Gill, a highly respected partner with more than 15 years’ experience, to its London Corporate practice, where he will focus on M&A, venture capital and private equity in the technology sector for high growth companies.

    Jon qualified at Eversheds Sutherland, later moving to TLT in 2013 from where he now joins.

    Jon led his previous firm’s private equity, venture capital and technology M&A coverage, and founded its Fast Growth team, a national team of multi-disciplinary specialists that advises growth companies.

    Bringing a wealth of experience to Eversheds Sutherland, Jon specialises in venture capital, private equity and M&A transactions, with a particular focus on the technology sector.

    His client portfolio includes fast growth technology companies, venture capital investors and private equity investors.

    Richard Moulton, Co-Head of Global Corporate and M&A at Eversheds Sutherland, commented:

    “Jon brings valuable industry experience and knowledge to our City-based corporate practice, in particular to our TMT M&A sector group, and we couldn’t be more delighted to welcome him back. His arrival will allow us to build on our expertise and enhance our service offering in this space. Jon will work across our global network, providing a seamless cross-border service to our diverse technology client base.”

    Giles Dennison, Head of Eversheds Sutherland’s TMT M&A Group, commented:

    “The corporate transactional market has entered a new phase of growth as we continue to emerge from the pandemic, particularly in the TMT M&A and venture capital markets. Jon brings a stellar reputation and an abundance of knowledge and experience, which will strengthen the firm’s technology M&A bench in London, and allow us to continue to evolve with the changing needs of our clients.”

    Jon Gill, commented:

    “I’m thrilled to be re-joining Eversheds Sutherland, working with a highly reputable team to help unlock the many opportunities available across its global network. My primary focus will be on high growth technology companies and on venture capital more generally, a market that has grown significantly in size and relevance in recent years. It’s an exciting next step and one I’m thoroughly looking forward to.”

    Jon has been ranked by Chambers & Partners for the last three years, where he is described as “extremely strong technically” and “a strong lawyer with good commercial sense”. His arrival follows hot on the heels of Eversheds Sutherland’s recent appointment of Paris-based Partner Eric Knai to Head of M&A (International) in June this year.
