What the team is known for
As well as having a strong presence in the UK with several offices across the country, Eversheds Sutherland has established a significant international pedigree. The law firm has continued to expand globally, making it a valuable option for handling cross-border matters, and the firm's team in London frequently acts as a generator and leader in relation to work done for multinational clients in conjunction with the firm's growing network of overseas offices. It has strong coverage across Europe, the USA and the Middle East and it has also developed a reputation for handling work spanning into Africa, Asia and Latin America, often through alliances with local firms.
The law firm's international office coverage, which includes 68 offices across 34 jurisdictions around the world, is a real asset to the disputes team, housing dedicated litigation expertise in each office. Cross-border work is further facilitated by the firm's global litigation technology team, a group spread across the USA, the UK and Asia, designed to streamline various processes such as e-discovery, licensing and general case management. The London office is the largest hub within the global disputes team and is central to much of the firm's international work, with its lawyers adopting a quarterbacking role on the majority of the firm's multi-jurisdictional disputes and investigations. For jurisdictions outside Eversheds' global footprint, the firm draws upon its various alliances with local counsel, particularly within Africa and Latin America.
A client enthuses: "Eversheds is one of the best international law firms with strong expertise in international arbitration. It has resources all over Africa with multilingual lawyers who are handy to effectively devise solutions to our cases. It has been a great experience working with them."
