EVERSHEDS Sutherland has announced Matthew Howse has joined their Belfast office as partner.
Matthew will join the litigation department of the international firm, bringing 13 years of legal experience with him from Birmingham and Belfast.
Throughout his career he has specialised in litigation and dispute resolution.
The announcement comes at a time of growth for the Belfast operation, who recently released plans to double its headcount in the next year and a half, with a focus on litigation, real estate, employment and banking.
The firm is also set to grow its Dublin office which currently employs 275 people.
Eversheds Sutherland managing partner, Alan Murphy today said:
“We are thrilled that Matthew has joined us, bolstering the firm even further as we move into a period of expansion in Belfast and Dublin.
“We are ambitious for the future and need the right people to help us do that. Matthew is an impressive individual and will be a strong addition as a partner.”
Matthew Howse added:
“This is an exciting opportunity to play a leading role in the development of the Eversheds Sutherland presence not only in Belfast, but in Dublin and throughout its international offices.
“Eversheds Sutherland has an outstanding reputation for offering professional advice and its client servicing. This coupled with the plans for growth made it the right time to join.”
