Eversheds Sutherland, formed in early 2017 through a cross-border combination, is starting off the new year with another merger.

The Global 100 firm announced Tuesday its absorption of a Dutch affiliate following a 10-year association. The Dutch firm was known as Faasen & Partners until 2008 when it joined Eversheds’ non-financially integrated European network and adopted the Eversheds brand.
