"We were impressed with the calibre and experience of both the legal and compliance support we received from Eversheds Sutherland. Having the legal expertise and Compliance Assurance team under the same roof was extremely effective – we really like the model. Eversheds Sutherland provided a seamless one stop shop in circumstances where we otherwise would have had to instruct separate law and consultancy firms."
