Eversheds rehires finance partner for third time
Eversheds Sutherland has strengthened its consumer finance practice in London with the hire of Barclays’ project legal head Naomi Seward.
Seward has had a long career of bouncing from Eversheds to in-house positions and back. She first started at Eversheds as a solicitor in 1999 before leaving the firm as a senior associate in 2008 to join Nationwide Building Society as a senior manager. After taking a pair of other in-house positions, one at Barclays and one at Premium Credit, she returned to Eversheds for a short stint in 2017. In August 2017 she made the move once again to Barclays as project legal head.
As she joins Eversheds as a partner for the first time, Seward will focus her practice on retail financial services, including consumer credit and regulation.
