Eversheds Sutherland appointed to Crown Commercial Service’s Legal Services Panel

Eversheds Sutherland (International) has cemented its position as a key strategic advisor to UK Government by being appointed to Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Legal Services Panel on Lot 2, Finance and Complex Legal Services.

This appointment demonstrates the success of the firm’s sector strategy through the creation of its dedicated Governments & Infrastructure sector group in 2020 to focus on high value, high profile and complex Government projects.

Eversheds Sutherland will now be able to bring to the Legal Services Panel the full extent of its UK and global experience of advising on transformational state led mandates from across its global network. The panel covers a range of services from corporate finance, to rescue/restructuring to advising on high value and complex projects of exceptional innovation.

The appointment takes effect from 1 December 2021 and is for three years.

Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04bn - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
