Richard Moulton - Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP

Within: M&A: lower mid-market deals, £50m-£500m

Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP advises national and international clients on cross-border M&A transactions, acting for corporates, financial institutions and private equity firms. The firm's global reach facilitates this multi-jurisdictional approach, with the London office operating as a hub for advising clients. Key sectors for the firm include energy and infrastructure, industrials, real estate, TMT and financial services. Head of department Richard Moulton is especially experienced in the latter two, in addition to acting for private equity clients. Although the firm saw Sebastian Orton leave for Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP, the team was bolstered by the hire of Stewart Womersley from Addleshaw Goddard, a specialist in real estate transactions, covering both indirect real estate and real estate funds. Co-chair of cross-border M&A, Roger Johnson, is also recommended.
