Eversheds Sutherland LLP


About Eversheds Sutherland LLP

Eversheds Sutherland is an international law firm with 68 offices in 34 countries. According to Legal 500, our Education Sector Group “is widely considered the market leader in the higher education field” and we are ranked in band 1 in Legal 500 and Chambers Directories for both our education and our employment law expertise. We have a dedicated team of experienced education lawyers with a thorough understanding of the issues and needs faced by HE institutions and we provide advice and support to education institutions and their senior leadership teams in all the legal areas they face (locally, nationally and internationally).

Over the past 12 months we have worked closely with sector clients in relation to a broad range of employment law issues, including helping institutions to meet the myriad challenges presented by the COVID19 pandemic. We have established ourselves as a thought leader for the sector on this critical issue and helped institutions respond to the rapidly changing regulatory environment they have faced over this period.  Alongside this, we have continued to support clients with their ‘business as usual’ HR activities, advising across a full range of contentious and non-contentious areas of employment law including complex high value tribunal proceedings, organisational change, industrial relations, investigations, staff discipline and grievances, whistleblowing challenges, international staffing and collaborations, immigration issues, equality and diversity, fixed-term/hourly paid staff, health and safety, reputation management and HR-related governance and regulatory matters.

We are delighted to be supporting UHR with this year’s annual conference.
