    Law firm Eversheds has announced the launch of Eversheds Consulting in Asia with the expansion of Eversheds Agile.

    The firm's flexible lawyer service Eversheds Agile is set to be rolled out in Hong Kong and Singapore during the summer with a view to becoming fully operational by September. Eversheds Agile provides interim legal consultants to in-house legal teams on a flexible basis. Its pool of lawyers for clients in Asia is expected to number initially between 20 and 30.

    Eversheds Consulting, which was launched in September 2010 has to date made great strides in the consulting market, with clients including GE, IATA, Lloyds Banking Group and Volvo.

    The Consulting arm expanded to Dubai in 2014 where it services high profile Middle East clients, including Abu Dhabi Airports Company and the Qatar Foundation.

    Through engaging with its clients in Asia it has recognised the demand in the region and is now the only global law firm to have a fully integrated international consulting practice.

    Partner lead for Eversheds Agile, David Boyd commented:

    "We are immensely proud of how far the Eversheds Agile offering has developed and this launch is one of the next steps in our journey to achieve our vision. We believe there is great potential in the Asia market for Consulting services and Eversheds Agile and we will leverage the learnings we have developed from other key jurisdictions to maximise opportunities.”

    Eversheds Asia managing partner Stephen Kitts commented:

    “Whilst Eversheds is a relatively new entrant in the Asia market, we have a strong reputation for delivering high quality legal advice and challenging the status quo to deliver new and fresh offerings, designed to meet what clients need in a fast changing environment.”

    “Having had discussions with existing clients in Asia over the last few months, we are confident that there is a real appetite for our Consulting and Eversheds Agile services which we are excited to offer to both new and existing clients in the region.”
