  • Ireland
  • General


Ireland's largest and most established global law firm, Eversheds Sutherland LLP has been named as the sponsor of the new ‘Business Person of the Month’ feature on Newstalk Breakfast Business.

The new feature hosted by Newstalk’s business editor Joe Lynam will showcase some of the country’s finest business leaders and innovators. The award itself will reflect excellence within the recipient’s profession - whether local or multinational.

Each month the winner will be interviewed live on Newstalk’s Breakfast Business, between 6.30 and 7 am. In addition, listeners of Breakfast Business will have the opportunity to nominate someone for ‘Business Person of the Month’ via the station’s website.

Breakfast Business has a very consistent and loyal listenership consisting of corporates, multinationals and SMEs. The initial six-month agreement, which is part of Eversheds Sutherland LLP’s wider marketing strategy, includes live mentions, a sponsor tagline, social media posts, etc.

The new sponsorship gets underway from today.

Alan Connell, Managing Partner of Eversheds Sutherland LLP said:

“As a global leader, we respect and acknowledge business people who excel within their profession, both local or multinational. As the largest and most established full-service global law practice in the country advising on high-profile and sophisticated workstreams, we constantly strive to stay ahead of our clients’ needs; being ahead of the curve is key to our success as we respond to the ever-increasing globalisation of the economy.

“We were the first major international law firm to have a significant presence in the Irish legal market; we are the standout law firm of choice for internationally-focused companies and financial institutions doing business in and from Ireland, and we’re delighted today to be the first to support this new feature on Newstalk’s Breakfast Business. We wish all the nominees and winners each month every continued success.”
