Eversheds Sutherland will be directed by two CEOs among a six-strong global management team. Lee Ranson, Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP Managing Partner and CEO-Elect will act as joint CEO with Mark Wasserman.

Ranson said, “Since the partner vote, things have moved on apace which says a lot about the collaborative relationship that already exists between us. Our joint focus is clear – it’s all about client service both for existing arrangements and in enhancing our offering for those who could benefit. The reaction internally and externally so far could not have been better with the opportunities and work presented to us already sending us a clear message that our global platform and approach to quality, innovation and client service is highly compelling.”
