Big changes at the Copenhagen office of Eversheds: 12 out and two up

The Copenhagen office of Eversheds is seeing a major shake-up, with 12 redundancies and the promotion of two partners to share the role of senior partner. The redundancies include both lawyers and support staff, though the exact numbers have not yet been made available. Partners Sam Jalaei and Nikolaj Juhl Hansen will co-lead the office after former office head Troels Askerud resigned earlier this month. A spokesperson said: "The Copenhagen office handles a large proportion of high value work each year and it remains an important part of Eversheds, a strong business in its own right and an office we are committed to growing. While regrettable, these actions will further strengthen the business as it focuses on areas of opportunity."
