Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP ‘provides the level of technical quality, client service and commercial acumen normally associated with a Magic Circle firm or large City practice’. With a ‘strong team across the board’ and the ‘outstanding’ and ‘technically rigorous’ Mark Wood at the helm, the practice is known for undertaking complex restructuring work, especially in the retail, financial services, energy and leisure sectors. Principal associate Ian Gill, senior associate Douglas Highet and associate Sharenaah Atwal are also noted. A major recent highlight was acting for the administrators of Feather & Black on issues related to the administration, including advice on trading issues and asset disposal. In other work, the group joined forces with its Madrid office to act for John Sisk to pursue actions in the standstill agreements of Duro Felguera. Other clients include Lloyds, KPMG and Mazars.
