For more than 90 years, Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP has built upon the high standards of its founders with a commitment to integrity, to high-quality client service, and to our communities. Our firm was founded as Sutherland & Tuttle in 1924 by William Sutherland, formerly a law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brandeis, and Elbert Tuttle, who later became the Chief Judge on the US Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In subsequent years, we became known as Sutherland Asbill & Brennan and, in recent years, we combined with an international firm to become Eversheds Sutherland.
Today, our attorneys practice from more than 65 offices worldwide, including eight office locations in the United States: Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Houston, New York, Sacramento, San Diego, and Washington DC. Eversheds Sutherland is known for solving complex business problems and resolving sophisticated legal issues for a diverse client base that includes more than 70 Fortune 100 companies and more than 110 Fortune 200 companies. We serve our clients through prominent practices in Capital Markets, Energy, Insurance, Intellectual Property, Investment Services, Litigation, Corporate and M&A, Finance, Real Estate and Construction, and Tax.
We are proud of our recent successes, which reach all of our offices and practice areas.

Furthermore, our Tax Practice Group was selected as Practice Group of the Year by Law360 for the third consecutive year and we were recognized with the 2020 Champions of Justice Award by Amicus ALJ, a legal charity which helps provide representation for those facing the death penalty in the US.
