    The Washington office of Eversheds Sutherland hosted the First Minister of Wales Rt Hon Carwyn Jones yesterday (26 February 2018) with a lunchtime reception hosted in conjunction with the British-American Business Association.

    The reception offered guests an opportunity to discuss the Welsh Government’s perspective on trade, investment and the political climate in Wales, the UK and the USA.

    Representatives from both Eversheds Sutherland’s Cardiff and Washington DC offices were in attendance including Cardiff Senior Partner Kathryn Roberts, Washington head Amish Shah, energy and environmental partner Mark Herlach and business practices partner Cynthia Krus.

    The co-host, the British-American Business Association, is a corporate network which aims to advance economic growth for companies with transatlantic operations.

    Kathryn Roberts said:

    “We were delighted to host the First Minister Carwyn Jones in Washington and help support the promotion of Wales as a great place for the US and Canada to do business. Fostering transatlantic relationships has been an important objective of the global legal practice since the combination of Eversheds Sutherland went live last year.”

    Rt Hon Carwyn Jones said:

    “It was great to meet with staff from Eversheds Sutherland’s Washington DC and Cardiff offices and hear about their exciting future plans.

    “America is Wales’ most important business partner and I want to build on the strong trade links that exist between our two countries as we leave the EU. Exciting opportunities for trade with North America lie ahead and, in my discussions with American businesses and politicians this week, I am reaffirming our commitment to boosting trade between Wales and the USA.

     “As Wales and the UK prepare to leave the EU, I want to reassure investors and visitors from the United States that Wales remains an outward looking and welcoming country.”
