Eversheds declined to comment.

This isn’t the first time a major law firm has been targeted by activists. In 2020, Legal Cheek reported that protestors wearing hazmat suits and banging drums descended on Slaughter and May’s London HQ in protest over what they said were the firm’s ties to the oil and gas industry.

Pathetic

Just Stop Moaning

Why was the SHED targeted? Pretty much every commercial law firm has/had oil and gas clients.

These people need to get a bloody job

Greasing their building is the least these protestors could do.
