Eversheds ditches regional head roles" /> Eversheds has restructured its management team for the second time since it merged its Nottingham, Birmingham and Cardiff offices in 2004.

As such,former heads of regions are now titled as senior partner. The firm will now focus on national sector group heads, office senior partners and office practice heads. Stephen Hopkins, head of the firm's northern region, Cornelius Medvei, head of the eastern region, and Alan Meredith, head of the central region, will all act as senior partners of the Leeds, London and Cardiff offices respectively.
