Eversheds targets international expansion with quadruple partner win

Eversheds has gone on a hiring spree with four new partner appointments across the firm’s European offices.

The firm’s Danish office has taken on corporate partner Sam Jalaei from tax law firm Lett and competition partner Mogens Aarestrup Vind from leading Danish firm Kromann Reumert.

In Spain, corporate partner Miguel Huarte joins from Ramón y Cajal, while in Poland Marek Czarny joins from Clifford Chance. Czarny will be responsible for the banking and finance practice.

Eversheds chairman and international chief Alan Jenkins said the appointments show the firm’s commitment to its international practice.

“We’re still investing heavily in our international growth. It’s what our clients want to see,” said Jenkins. “The cornerstones of our strategy remain – to increase the number of our international offices, to expand our London office and to invest in first-class client service.”

Evershed’s current hiring extravaganza follows the firm’s announcement about a new association with Swiss firm Schmid and its application to launch an office in Abu Dhabi. The firm’s Milan office has also moved to new premises in response to growing staff numbers.
