Employment Tier 3

‘The employment team at Eversheds Sutherland, headed by Mrs. Silva Palzer, brings a lot of value to our HR topics in the company, not only in providing brilliant legal advice but also with respect to the capability to think outside the box.’

‘They work very close together and update each other. Always great support. Clear and very professional but also very human.’

‘On time in full competent delivery. Always reachable, always to the point, short lead times. I do work closely with the Austrian and German team under the lead of Manuel Boka and Silva Palzer. All members of the two mentioned teams are sound professionals, knowledgeable, and with a fantastic customer-oriented attitude. The approach from Eversheds is more to solve and help in the cases, and not so fee oriented. Eversheds is rather a system partner for me than a supplier.’
