About Eversheds Sutherland in the UK

About Eversheds Sutherland in the UK

Eversheds Sutherland is an international law firm with a clear vision of the future. A firm that is adapting to new demands and business pressures. A firm that understands what clients need today and, equally important, what they will need tomorrow.

We have recognised that the marketplace is changing, and we have analysed what is shaping the industries we serve. Now we are focusing on creative and cost-effective solutions that ensure our clients receive the best service at the best price.

It is an approach that makes Eversheds Sutherland such a distinctive and innovative force in the legal world. It is what makes us 21st century lawyers.

More than law

We have looked very closely at our industry and what concerns our clients. For example: spiralling costs, jobs that overrun, and the need to go beyond core legal advice and be a trusted business partner. We understand how organisations work, we know the commercial drivers and the strategic imperatives, and we have a wealth of experience across a wide range of industries.

No comparable law firm delivers the same level of project management and transparency. With Eversheds Sutherland, you receive prices and plans that won't change without your knowledge or permission. You have control of your legal spend and total accountability from your advisers; nothing is left to chance, nothing is random or surprising. What you see is what you get - quality with clarity.

Network power

Do you have a particularly complex or challenging project? Then we have a bespoke team for you. Our offices and staff are mutually supporting: wherever you are, whatever your requirements, we have thousands of people worldwide with specialist skills and industry knowledge. And we channel our talent so that the right teams are assigned to the right jobs. We call that networked law.

Moreover, we have created Eversheds Sutherland International to provide breadth as well as strength. There are no weak links or gaps in our global chain. Every office and every lawyer is committed to the same high level of quality.

Managing your business

We are conspicuous leaders in account management. Eversheds Sutherland is noted for its turnkey approach to corporate counsel, supported by a tailor-made Global Account Management System (GAMs). We are handling ever-larger mandates and setting an industry example with work for companies such as Tyco and DuPont. Clients respect us for our size, strength and ability to cover the widest range of jurisdictions and disciplines. And, thanks to networked law and project management, we always provide consistency and accountability.

A world of difference

We take corporate responsibility and diversity very seriously. They are embedded in our culture and part of what makes Eversheds Sutherland such a progressive and innovative firm. Our staff are continually consulted on our performance and encouraged to make Eversheds Sutherland a great place to work and a positive agent for change. We work responsibly and plan wisely, conscious of our duty to our clients, each other, and our environment.
