Eversheds Sutherland: first law firm to back government’s Northern Powerhouse partnership programme

Eversheds Sutherland (International) has become the first law firm to join the government’s Northern Powerhouse partnership programme. Established by Prime Minister Theresa May and led by Northern Powerhouse Minister, Andrew Percy, more than 90 firms have signed up to become partners of the government scheme, aimed at helping the North achieve its full potential. Each of the companies within the partnership programme – ranging from banks and universities to infrastructure and property specialists – has committed to supporting the Northern economy and delivering growth and investment to the region. Working with the government, the partnership will champion the strengths of the North by promoting new and exciting local developments across transport, skills and innovation, culture and devolution.

Eversheds and joint campaign

Eversheds has partnered with to collate some important views from businesses across the North on the Northern growth agenda and the need for rebalancing the UK economy, particularly post Brexit result. Following a survey that was rolled out through we have held two roundtables in Manchester and Leeds gathering together key stakeholders across the Northern Powerhouse project including Charlie Cornish who sits on the Board of George Osborne’s new Northern Powerhouse thinktank.

The findings from both the survey and roundtables have been used to create a report: ‘Rebalancing the UK economy: Defining the Northern Powerhouse post-Brexit’.
