Eversheds is set to enter the fast-growing contract lawyer market with the pilot of its own ‘on demand’ legal business. Graham Richardson, who leads the firm’s consultancy business, is heading up the pilot, dubbed ‘Eversheds Agile’, which began last month and has already seen contract lawyers hired out to GE’s Watford arm as well as a global financial services firm in Hong Kong and a financial services company in the UK.
