Former Paul Hastings global M&A chair Roger Barron has taken up a post at Eversheds Sutherland as a senior adviser, as the firm looks to seriously invest in its M&A and wider corporate offering. Barron, who left Paul Hastings in March, is regarded as a rainmaker in the legal M&A world and spent the majority of his career at Linklaters in the U.K. before joining Paul Hastings in 2018.
Eversheds Sutherland is now looking to harness that experience as it seeks to strengthen its corporate sphere and “push the brand forward”, according to co-head of global corporate and commercial Keri Rees.
