Konexo celebrates its one-year anniversary

Konexo, developed by Eversheds Sutherland, today celebrates the one-year anniversary of its official launch.

During this time, the practice has advanced its position through continued global expansion across Europe, Asia, and most recently the United States. It has also strengthened its capabilities in areas including digital transformation, managed legal services, and trade mark and design law.

Konexo works with global clients across multiple sectors including banking and financial services, telecoms, and diversified industrials, offering clients a breadth of services underpinned by cutting-edge technology such as AI and robotics.

Investing in top talent continues to be a strategic priority. Significant hires include Babar Hayat, Head of Technology and Transformation, who leads the digital transformation practice, while Brett Aubin, Managing Director, heads regulatory response managed services focusing on LIBOR transition services and other repapering projects. Trystan Richards recently joined as Legal Services Director, and will support managed service relationships and repapering projects across the global client base.

Earlier this year Konexo launched Resourcing+, an evolution of its existing resourcing service which was rolled out across its global network. Resourcing+ gives clients immediate and high quality legal talent without having to commit to specific timeframes. Clients using the service include Nestlé UK Ltd, Pernod Ricard UK Ltd and Lion Pty Ltd.

This month, Eversheds Sutherland’s UK Branding Group permanently moved to Konexo. Led by Kate Ellis, it comprises specialist trade mark and design lawyers, attorneys and paralegals. The team provides a dedicated service and acts as ‘one stop shop’ for clients throughout the full lifecycle of a brand.

Graham Richardson, Head of Konexo, said: “We set out to challenge the market and offer clients something different. I am so proud of everything we have achieved so far and I’m especially proud of the team for their drive, hard work and tenacity. As we look to the coming year there will be some testing times ahead. However, by combining our talent, technology and expertise, I am confident that we are well placed to meet those challenges and the needs of our clients.”

Konexo launches ‘hourly’ resourcing model

Konexo, a division of Eversheds Sutherland, has launched Resourcing+ an evolution of its existing resourcing service to be rolled out across its global network.

As the demand for different ways of working increase, Resourcing+ gives clients immediate and high quality legal talent on an hourly basis with the flexibility tailored to clients. Clients will be able to hire immediate, ad hoc support as an extension to their in-house team without having to commit to specific timeframes.

Clients currently using the service include Nestle UK, Pernod Ricard UK and Lion Group.

James Lewindon, Head of Konexo Legal Resourcing UK, said: “As clients face challenges around location, IT infrastructure and talent management, being able to access interim staff on an ad hoc and flexible basis is both appealing and necessary particularly in the current climate.

“Clients are looking for high quality and experienced legal professionals who can hit the ground running. Resourcing+ provides both reassurance to clients and a service to meet their varied and changing business needs.”

Konexo Legal Resourcing has provided interim placements to its clients for the last nine years and has an extensive talent pool of over 1,000 legal professionals including lawyers, paralegals and project managers across multiple legal disciplines.
