Osborne Clarke LLP
Osborne Clarke is an award-winning multinational law firm. We’ve grown rapidly, with 25 offices around the world and we’re proud to say that our influence and impact can now be applied almost anywhere. The core sectors we work in all thrive on innovation; digital business, energy, financial services, life sciences, real estate, recruitment and transport. Our sector teams include lawyers from all legal disciplines, effortlessly blending expertise, insight and enthusiasm. Crucially, we think sector-first, organising ourselves around the current affairs and future challenges of the industries we serve, rather than traditional legal practice areas. It helps keep us one step ahead.
Of course, like any private practice, legal expertise is at the heart of everything we do. But what makes us distinctive? For a start, you can expect to get involved in truly fascinating work. The variety of our deals and the diversity of our clients provide an exciting and immersive commercial framework. This is a firm where fresh ideas (and the confidence and conviction to see them through) are highly prized, and we’re never afraid to take a view. It is also firm with a coherent commercial vision, with a clear direction, supported by a compelling sense of purpose and identity. Put simply, we’re going places. And you can put our positive, can-do attitude down to sustained success, in terms of both profile and performance.
Our high profile clients expect us to be brilliant, whether we are corporate, commercial or litigation lawyers, so we put a lot of effort into helping our people be the best they can throughout their careers – not just at the start of it. We foster the brightest and the best, with class-leading training and development programmes, and a unique climate of learning and discovery for everyone. We place value on individuals and respect their needs, motivations and choices. Our workplaces are designed to promote collaboration, often featuring open plan structures that make it easy to fit-in, mix and get involved. You’ll also find flexible and imaginative approaches to everyone’s work/life needs, with a connected infrastructure that is adaptive and tailored to bringing out the best in people.
Finally, there’s our culture. When we asked our recent recruits what attracted them to us, they used words like ‘friendly’, ‘inclusive’, ‘open’ and ‘fun’. To our clients we are ‘approachable’, ‘proactive’, ‘understanding’ and ‘formidable’. This is a firm where integrity and fairness keep us together. We naturally build a strong rapport and enduring connections with everyone we engage with.
