  • Is this strategic thinking from Eversheds?
    Remarkable, but seemingly true and well planned.
    Where is next on their hit list I wonder? Is it the big American jump...?

  • Great news for the legal industry in the ME. Unprecedented and brave step from Eversheds to trust in, and take a big risk in the Middle East with all that is going on right now. Certainly the American jump makes sense now.

  • Great coup by Eversheds. They have merged with a well respected Middle East outfit that many of the other international law firms courted but were unable to secure!!

  • Congratulations to Eversheds.
    I await the article on their now-inevitable merger with an american firm with baited breath.

  • My money is on a firm like Fried Frank whose non-US enterprises do not match the productivity of their US offices in the way that Mayor Brown or Kirkland might be able to claim. Good for Eversheds because the Fried Frank London office is not all that big (esp. in litigation / property etc) and Eversheds would then get their stellar US clients and would then potentially be able to claim a kind of Silver Circle or Magic Circle type status. Some of these US firms' offices in London don’t really do much so if Eversheds or SJBerwin are on the look out for a merger then I would imagine the US firms would jump at it.

  • The anonymous posters above are slightly dubious...
    By all means Eversheds should be congratulated on taking a bold step, it should work out well for them, however the suggestion that they have pulled the prom queen is rather wide of the mark...
    As a recruiter whom has seen the CVs of several of the KSLG lawyers I can comfortably say that they are nothing special!!

  • Congratulations to Eversheds for its social media policy of posting positive comments on its own story. Maybe try and be a little more subtle next time guys and girls??
