Eversheds sent its usual gang of lawyers to the Association of Corporate Counsel annual meeting in San Diego recently. Apparently, the lawyers made rather a splash in their fetching red shirts.

But the colour of Eversheds’ garb appears to be guiding its new offices. This time last year the team went in emerald green, and within weeks Dublin firm O’Donnell Sweeney had signed up to the network. This year’s meeting came only a short while after the firm secured its Shanghai licence, making the bright Chinese red rather appropriate. What next?
