Eversheds Sutherland is a top 15 global law practice, with an established team of over 70 lawyers advising on data centre projects and transactions across our network of 67 offices, including all of the Tier 1 data centre locations.

In the last year alone we have advised on data centre business acquisitions, sale and leasebacks, site acquisitions and new developments, including acting (both on operator and client side) on more than two dozen wholesale co-location contracts equating to an aggregate capacity of more than 100 megawatts, in addition to business-as-usual customer contract negotiations.

We act for data centre operators including and also for funders and users of data centres, including a number of the US hyperscale businesses.

The legal challenges facing data centres are unique. We provide a distinct blend of specialist legal advice and industry knowledge, covering many different legal disciplines – including real estate, finance, corporate, construction, commercial, IT, telecoms, data privacy, employment and energy

Regardless of jurisdiction, we operate as one collaborative team, providing swift, commercial and cost-effective advice.
