Inhouse Litigation Lawyer within Private Practice firm( 4+ PQE) - Reading

Core Teams

MLS is a novel and pretty unique arrangement for the provision of legal services. In April 2018, Eversheds Sutherland won, via a competitive tender process, a multi-year managed legal services contract with a utilities client and took over the existing legal services team (On-Site Team) from the client’s former managed legal service provider. The team is involved in advising the client on a very wide range of day-to-day legal matters including competition, projects and planning, regulation, construction, real estate, commercial contracts, tax, disputes, energy, employment and health and safety.

The On-Site Team currently consists of around 19 Solicitors and Paralegals and a small management team. The team is embedded within the client, sitting in the client’s head office in Reading alongside the client’s retained legal function.
