Eversheds Sutherland is pleased to announce that it has been singled out as one of the leading legal practices in the world by Law360 in its annual Global 20 rankings.
Law360, a nationwide legal news service, evaluated the positioning of law firms in the market based on five determining factors, including those that have the largest global presence and handled the most significant and groundbreaking international and cross-border matters over the past year. Of the 20 law firms recognized, Eversheds Sutherland ranks number 13.
The Global 20 recognition comes just seven months after the formation of the largest law firm combination in the world in 2017, which brought together US-based Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP with UK-based Eversheds LLP.
Mark Wasserman, Co-CEO of Eversheds Sutherland, commented:
“Since the combination, we have been working closely to advance the shared goal of providing clients with quality, innovation and consistency in legal services delivery around the globe. Working together with our colleagues worldwide, we are committed to further delivering the benefits of this broadened international platform to our clients. This recognition reflects our efforts and collaboration to date and it is an honor to be acknowledged by Law360 for the tremendous work we carry out for our clients.”
Lee Ranson, Co-CEO of Eversheds Sutherland, added:
“The strategic expansion of our global platform is a key element of our 2020 vision and, driven by client need, this has already gathered impressive momentum with the opening of six new offices since June. We are delighted that the success of our combination and the quality of our work has been recognized by Law360 in this way.”
Law360’s acknowledgement of Eversheds Sutherland’s work also comes on the heels of various other client service recognitions. Most recently, Eversheds Sutherland was named a Most Recommended Law Firm for the fourth year in a row by BTI Consulting Group.
