International firm Eversheds, in association with local office JB Eversheds, has announced it will open its sixth office in Finland, in the western city of Pori.

The firm currently has offices in Helsinki, Hämeenlinna, Jyväskylä, Tampere and Turku following its merger with local firm Juridia Bützow – incorporating Heinonen – in November 2014.

The new office will be headed by a new partner hire, Sampsa Kataja, who joins from his own practice.
