Sutherland has been named Tax Practice Group of the Year for the third consecutive year by Law360, a nationwide legal news service. The award is given annually to firms that had the biggest wins and worked on the most important deals over a one-year period.
Eversheds and Sutherland partners have voted overwhelmingly to combine, advancing the firms’ shared goal of providing clients with the highest quality service consistently around the globe. The two firms announced on November 29 that they were in discussions about a potential combination. The firms’ consultation and voting process concluded simultaneously on December 16 with exceptionally strong approval from the respective Partnerships. The firms will become equal members in a new entity and will do business around the world as Eversheds Sutherland. Both firms will begin using the Eversheds Sutherland identity on February 1, 2017.
Sutherland is pleased to present the Winter edition of Partnering Perspectives, which provides insight into a number of developing legal issues that provide thought-provoking analysis of the challenges and opportunities that await us.
