Eversheds combines with Sutherland | Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland emerges with new name and visual identity.
We are pleased to announce that on 1 February 2017 the newly created firm Eversheds Sutherland was launched on the international legal services market. The global law firm arising from the combination of Eversheds and the American law firm Sutherland Asbill & Brennan has 61 offices in 29 countries and a total of more than 2,300 lawyers. As a result of the combination, our law firm is changing its name to Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland Sp. k.
Combining the strengths of Eversheds and Sutherland is a huge step in the process of building a firm with global reach, and another milestone in the development of our Polish firm. From now on we will be able to better respond to the needs of our existing US clients and clients who intend to enter the US market, plan to conduct transactions there, or are engaged in disputes with companies in the US. The combination with Sutherland also allows us to strengthen a number of practices that are important to us and which Sutherland has also specialised in, such as energy, corporate law, taxation, financial services including insurance, intellectual property, litigation and real estate.
The American law firm Sutherland Asbill & Brennan was founded in 1924. Prior to the combination with Eversheds it had six offices in the US and two in Europe. The firm works for the biggest global companies and its client portfolio includes more than half of the US Fortune 100 companies.
The legal identity of Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland remains unchanged, and thus the new name does not mean that you need to amend agreements or the like. The registration data, such as the VAT number and the postal address, remain unchanged. If it is necessary to supplement the paperwork in our cooperation going forward, we will let you know.
We invite you to follow us on LinkedIn, where the new profile Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland has just appeared, and on Twitter and Facebook. You will find interesting articles, legal alerts and invitations to events organized by us in each of these channels.
