Eversheds legal briefing

"Eversheds is an international law firm with a clear vision of the future. A firm that is adapting to new demands and business pressures. A firm that understands what clients need today and, equally important, what they will need tomorrow.

"We have recognised that the marketplace is changing, and we have analysed what is shaping the industries we serve. Now we are focusing on creative and cost-effective solutions that ensure our clients receive the best service at the best price.

"It is an approach that makes Eversheds such a distinctive and innovative force in the legal world. It is what makes us 21st century lawyers.

"We have looked very closely at our industry and what concerns our clients. For example: spiralling costs, jobs that overrun, and the need to go beyond core legal advice and be a trusted business partner. We understand how organisations work, we know the commercial drivers and the strategic imperatives, and we have a wealth of experience across a wide range of industries.

"No comparable law firm delivers the same level of project management and transparency. With Eversheds, you receive prices and plans that won't change without your knowledge or permission. You have control of your legal spend and total accountability from your advisers; nothing is left to chance, nothing is random or surprising. What you see is what you get - quality with clarity."
