Eversheds has become the first law firm to become a member of the diversity promoters Minority Supplier Development UK (MSDUK).
The news comes just weeks after Eversheds secured a second contract with engineering conglomerate Tyco, which will give financial rewards for diversity achievements (The Lawyer, 19 May).
The firm has become MSDUK’s thirty-eight member since it was formed two years ago, and joins other international businesses including Dell, Mastercard Worldwide, Merrill Lynch and PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

Powell said: “Eversheds takes the issue of diversity extremely seriously. There is a strong business case for us and other large organisations like ours to engage with MSDUK and its members.”
