Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP, rebranded to the abbreviated name of Sutherland, was an AmLaw 100 American law firm.[1] Founded in 1924 by William Sutherland and Elbert Tuttle as Sutherland & Tuttle, the firm originally achieved national prominence on tax issues.[2] Sutherland's practice extended throughout the United States and worldwide, and was focused on seven major practice areas: corporate, energy and environmental, financial services, intellectual property, litigation, real estate, and tax.[2] As of January 2011, the firm had approximately 422 attorneys.[3]

History

Founded in 1924 by William Sutherland and Elbert Tuttle, the firm of Sutherland & Tuttle first established a practice in the tax field. In the ensuing years, the firm developed practices in corporate, energy, financial services, intellectual property, litigation and real estate. In 1933, Joseph Brennan became partner and the firm became known as Sutherland, Tuttle & Brennan. The firm opened an office in Washington, DC in 1937. In 1949, Mac Asbill, Sr. joined the Washington office. In 1954, firm co-founder Elbert Tuttle accepted an appointment to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Upon his departure, the firm was renamed Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP, the name it was known by for more than 50 years.

In the 1970s and 80s, Sutherland expanded in the fields of energy, financial services, technology and intellectual property law. The 1980s saw the firm’s litigation practice expand and in the 1990s the firm reached the 300-lawyer mark and opened an office in Austin. In the early 2000s, Sutherland launched its intellectual property group and opened offices in New York and Houston.

In 2014, Sutherland combined with Arbis LLP in London and Geneva to create a global energy practice. In December 2016, Eversheds and Sutherland partners voted to merge as Eversheds Sutherland.[4] On February 1, 2017, the firms became equal members in a new entity and currently do business around the world as Eversheds Sutherland.[5] At the time of the combination with Eversheds, Sutherland had 400 lawyers operating in eight offices in the US and Europe.
