The ‘responsive and pragmatic’ 20-strong team at Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP provides 'tactically astute’ and ‘very commercial advice’ across both contentious and non-contentious matters to public and private sector clients including Welsh Water, Wolverine Worldwide, Neilsen Group and British Broadcasting Corporation. The sheer size of the team enables practitioners within it to have significant pockets of expertise. For example, Thomas Player excels at handling industrial relations work and recently represented SPX Flow on its negotiation of a European Works Council in accordance with the EU directive and the Transnational Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations. Many of Tom Bray’s clients are major global entities including Heathrow Airport, which he continues to represent on all its employment tribunals and industrial relations needs. ‘Outstanding’ team head Anthony Rees provides ‘responsive and solution-focused advice’ across a range of contentious and non-contentious work for both private and public sector clients; he recently successfully defended global motor manufacturing company Toyoda Gosei against claims of victimisation, race discrimination and breach of contract. Other recommended practitioners include Huw Rolant Jones, who leads on all the public sector mandates handled by the group; ‘impressive’ senior associate Richard Woodhead , who provides ‘sensitive and sensible advice’ on complex discrimination and whistleblowing claims; and legal director Helen Mortlock , who handles employment work for the firm’s higher education clients.
