For 15 years Dan was a practising corporate lawyer advising on M&A and corporate finance transactions, in the UK and internationally. Four years ago he stopped transactional work to set-up and grow our Osborne Clarke Solutions business.
Osborne Clarke Solutions exists to help clients obtain greater value from their legal services, and to deliver greater productivity across their teams and businesses. This lawyer-led business uses subject matter expertise, creativity, and technology to achieve this. They work hand in hand with client teams through the design, fast build and delivery of their solutions, which involve automation, workflows, integration of applications, intuitive UX design, and of course major on the capture, analysis and visualisation of data.
The team are working with UK and International businesses, across various sectors including real estate, finance, retail, energy and technology. Their projects include those where Osborne Clarke are also providing legal input, as well as projects to work across multiple legal and other service providers, and projects to help the management of delivery of purely internal work.
Dan has been recognised by the FT as one of Europe's most Innovative Lawyers, and as a top disruptor by The Lawyer in their Hot 100 of 2019. He is part of some industry partnerships looking at collaborative product development, as well as working with other organisations on technology projects and industry standards.
