Over 275 years at the forefront of change

In 2023, Osborne Clarke celebrated 275 years of providing our clients with expert guidance and support through times of change. Our steadfast commitment to innovation has been an integral part of our success.

Whether it was the introduction of the UK rail system centuries ago or today's challenges of artificial intelligence and climate change, we've always been at the forefront of change. We're proud of our long-standing history in business, which is a testament to our adaptability, endurance, and strength.

Throughout the centuries, we have gained a deep understanding of our clients' needs, and we're dedicated to delivering exceptional advice and services that meet and exceed their expectations. Our centuries of experience in the legal industry are a source of pride for us. We're honored to be able to reassure our clients and employees that we've stood the test of time, and we'll continue to do so for many more years to come.

Our team and focus in the US

Osborne Clarke is a full service international law firm providing a comprehensive and pragmatic global legal solution for US businesses.

Since the launch of our first US office in 2000, our US-based team has been giving clients access to the know-how and expertise that we've developed over the years supporting US businesses operating internationally. We don't advise on US law and instead focus on overseas legal issues. Our clients span from up-and-coming challengers and disrupters to leading US companies. We provide clients with deep sector expertise, highly customized legal advice and market insights in the following sectors: Technology, Media and Communications, Financial Services, The Built Environment, Life Sciences and Healthcare, Retail and Consumer, Energy and Utilities, and Mobility and Infrastructure. 

We provide a dedicated 'in time zone' project manager who supports clients through the international launch process by quarterbacking our overseas experts. We bring a different approach to helping businesses expand outside of the US -- ensuring they efficiently enter a new market whilst minimizing the headache of overseas law and regulation.
