Basic Info

Eversheds Sutherland is a global top 10 law practice that provides strategic legal advice and solutions to a global client base ranging from small and mid-sized businesses to the largest multinationals.

With over 70 offices across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States, our global network of lawyers are available to assist you in every major international market and guide you through transactions in these often complex marketplaces. We often coordinate projects for international companies with an Irish / European establishment or expansion plans, and regularly act as a central point across the Eversheds Sutherland network. Our clients are a combination of indigenous owner-managed companies as well as international and multinational companies, banks, financial institutions, start-ups and public organisations.

The Irish offices, which serves as an important European hub for the firm’s international client base, employ over 300 talented professionals and have a strong tradition and culture of investing in world-class people and nurturing young talent. With offices in Belfast and Dublin, we are Ireland’s only full service international law practice with an all-island and UK presence. Our International Trade and Brexit group is a versatile practice that works with our clients to maximise their international opportunities, helping them successfully navigate what can be a complex framework of international and domestic laws and regulations.
