Eversheds is one of the world’s largest corporate law firms. We have more than 40 offices based in the world’s major cities - with a proven track record of always giving the highest quality legal services. We like to think we're committed locally, but connected globally. 
We've developed organically over the past 10 years, working for corporate organisations of all shapes and sizes in countries where they want to do business. But no matter where they are, our lawyers always share the same values, ways of working and have the same understanding of what our clients really want.

In 2012 we grew the firm even bigger - opening offices in the Middle East. Now Eversheds is the first international law firm to establish an office in Iraq, making us  one of the biggest international players on the ground, with local lawyers based in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Doha, Dubai and Riyadh. In 2012 we also expanded into Romania as well. So we've had a busy year!

As a modern, progressive law firm, at Eversheds we set ourselves apart through the people we hire, our culture and our attitude to change. Quality is a matter of personal pride to everyone and we always recruit - and keep! - the best staff we can. Working together in teams and innovative thinking is encouraged and supported across the company at all levels and this means that our clients get to enjoy an offering that's constantly evolving and improving to meet their changing needs. 

Our relationships with clients are deep and genuine. It's vital to us that we understand the sector and business culture that each of our client operates in. Collaboration and working closely with our client is seen as a way of providing the most effective advice. Trust and accountability are the foundations of all the relationships we have with our clients. 

Eversheds Unlocked

A pathway to law for students

As a progressive international law firm, we at Eversheds believe that a career in law should be open to everyone.

Eversheds Unlocked is specifically designed for students at state schools who may never have imagined pursuing a career as a professional lawyer.

Would you like hands-on experience of what it's like to be a lawyer? Do you want genuine support to achieve your potential? And are you excited by the possibility of developing your very own 'pathway' to a career in law?

Then Eversheds Unlocked could be the key you've been looking for...
