Eversheds is one of the world's largest corporate law firms. Committed locally, but connected globally, with over 40 offices based in the world's major economic centres, with a proven track record of delivering consistently high quality legal services across jurisdictions.
The firm has developed organically over the past decade working for corporate organisations of all shapes and sizes in countries where they want to do business. Lawyers in all locations share the same values, ways of working and understanding of what clients really want. The past year has seen further international expansion for the firm. In the Middle East, the firm has become the first international player to establish an office in Iraq and is now one of the largest international players on the ground, with local lawyers based in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Doha, Dubai and Riyadh. The last year also saw the firm expand its operations into Romania as well.
As a modern, progressive law firm, Eversheds sets itself apart through its people, culture and its attitude to change. Quality is a matter of personal pride to everyone and staff of the highest calibre are recruited and retained by the firm. Collaborative working and innovative thinking is encouraged and supported at all levels, meaning that clients enjoy an offering that is constantly evolving and improving to meet their changing needs. This has led to pioneering approaches to the law such as genuine project management and measurement of results that leads to cost predictability and control. In particular, the firm is noted for effectively delivering complex, multi-national legal services through one point of contact.
Relationships with clients are deep and genuine. An understanding of the sector and business culture which each client operates in, is a given. Collaboration is seen as a way of providing the most effective advice. Trust and accountability are the bedrock of all the firm's client relationships.
Every year, Eversheds breaks new ground and is a firm that offers a clear alternative to those who want more from their lawyers.
