Commercial Law Team Triples at Eversheds


EVERSHEDS' international capabilities and sector expertise have helped the firm stay at the top of the North-East legal market.

This year's Legal 500 directory highlights the strength of the firm's Newcastle office, with Eversheds praised for its expertise in corporate and commercial, shipping, commercial property and clinical negligence. In addition the firm is ranked in 11 tier one categories including employment, public sector and EU and competition.
