Osbourne Clarke announces plan to launch in Brussels

UK firm Osborne Clarke has announced plans to launch an office in Brussels, even as the firm proceeds with early-stage merger talks with Field Fisher Waterhouse. The plan is to launch in the Belgian capital in early 2013 after dissociating with former local alliance partner De Wolf & Partners earlier this year when it revealed plans to merge with several members of its former alliance.  Osborne Clarke has already merged with its Spanish and Italian partners – Osborne Clarke Spain and SLA Studio Legale Associato, and has cut ties with other alliance members: Dutch firm Ploum Lodder Princen and French outfit Stehlin & Associes.
