    Eversheds corporate partner, Keri Rees, has been ranked ‘Star’ in the Acritas Stars Report – a coveted legal list of stand-out lawyers, independently nominated by clients worldwide.

    Rees was one of only 23 lawyers out of thousands to receive three distinct nominations.

    Acritas is a provider of legal market research data to the world’s leading professional services firms. Acritas Stars was developed at the request of Acritas’ global General Counsel (GC) panel. The panel wanted a directory of highly recommended lawyers that was based purely on the recommendations of the clients who instruct them, with no influence from law firms.

    According to Acritas, four core attributes were repeatedly expressed as distinguishing features for Star lawyers: Expert; Quick; Commercial; and Integrated. Emphasis on Star lawyer key qualities varied for clients in different countries. In the Americas, responsiveness was a highly valued attribute, while in the UK and Australia, more emphasis was placed on commerciality and taking a strategic approach.

    Eversheds’ company commercial head Keith Froud said:

    “This is a significant accolade. Keri has all of those attributes and more and I’m delighted he’s been appropriately recognised. Congratulations Keri.”

    Keri Rees commented:

    “I’m genuinely honoured and very grateful to those who kindly took the time to nominate – thank you. We have a fantastic corporate team here at Eversheds, one that I’m very proud to be part of and one that will continue putting its clients first.”
