Eversheds ist innovativste Kanzlei Europas
Eversheds is Europe’s most innovative law firm
Eversheds was elected most innovative law firm of Europe by the renowned financial newspaper Financial Times. The international law firm managed to climb to rank 1 in the ranking "Innovative Lawyers 2010" of the surveyed top 50 law firms compared to rank 4 last year.
The basis for the FT ranking is several months of research by the editorial team which is conducted in cooperation with RSG Consulting. In doing so, more than 600 submissions of law firms and legal departments are evaluated and more than 600 interviews are conducted with partners and managers. These results show that the requirements for legal advice are subject to constant changes. Transparency, innovative pricing and broad-based advisory services are needed more than ever. These approaches are already globally implemented by Eversheds.
FT: „This year’s FT Law 50 index of the most innovative law firms in Europe sees Eversheds move into pole position. The firm has a track record of being first in a variety of ways. Just three years ago, Helen Mahy, general counsel of National Grid, the UK energy utility, referred to Eversheds as the ‘new kid on the block’. It has grown into an adult firm in Europe, with a genuine commitment to trying to do things differently.”
Dr. Matthias Heisse, Managing Partner at Heisse Kursawe Eversheds, the German office of Eversheds International: „The wishes of our clients are our top priority. We share information with them as well as internally in order to react flexibly and with innovative offers to changed requirements. We consider our position in the ranking as confirmation that we are on the right track.”
Graham Richardson, Head of Innovation and Business Transformation at Eversheds: „Innovation is at the core of our strategy and at the heart of our international operations and client service. We accept this award as recognition that as a firm, we have adapted, improved and grown from the national UK law firm that we once were, to an international firm that has put the foundations in place to create a law firm for the next generation. This prestigious award is testament to our hard work, commitment to quality and passion which makes us the most innovative law firm in Europe.”
