Osborne Clarke launches in New York
Osborne Clarke has launched a presence in Manhattan, with plans to rotate European partners through the office on a rolling basis. The idea is that there will be 2 or three partners in the New York office at any one time, from a team of 12 partners and associate directors, including Osborne Clarke’s senior partner Tim Birt, London office head Andrew Saul and head of digital business Adrian Bott.
In the beginning the office will focus purely on the digital business sector, but it hopes to develop the venture capital and investment practices.
“Digital business is such a broad and far reaching spectrum that it could broaden out in future to include heath tech and health diagnostics,” said Bott. “We could also reach into the Boston community where there are investors and early-stage growth companies working in areas like healthcare and life sciences. There’s clearly an overlap there.”
