Eversheds wins VW Financial Services role

The firm will provide a variety of services to the financial arm of the car giant, including strategic HR planning and employee training on legal matters.

Eversheds employment partner Audrey Williams said the deal was not part of a wider panel review, adding that it would give the firm an openended arrangement with the company.

VWFS provides finance and insurance products to retailers representing the seven brands of the ­Volkswagen Group.

VWFS head of legal and compliance John Turwell said: “The Eversheds team proved itself to be transparent and straightforward with a commercial approach that goes beyond legal ­counsel.”
