Eversheds Sutherland promotes 20 new partners
Eversheds and Sutherland Asbill & Brennan joined forces earlier in the year. All 20 new partners are legacy Eversheds lawyers, as Sutherland promoted seven new partners prior to the merger.
The firm promoted fewer partners compared to last year, when 26 new partners were made up at Eversheds. Women represented 30 per cent of this year’s promotions, down from 42 per cent last year.
The firm’s new partners are based in various locations, with UK lawyers making up half of the total.
