International legal practice Osborne Clarke has advised the Jellyfish Group on its acquisition of the award-winning creative agency, Social Life, as part of its continuing expansion. It also marks Jellyfish’s first acquisition since receiving investment from French group Fimalac, a transaction Osborne Clarke also advised on.

The agency has a 50 strong team working across its offices in London, Los Angeles and Amsterdam. The team will continue to be led by Coope and Parrington.

This is the latest in a series of market-leading transactions in the marcomms sector that the team has advised on in 2019, and is the latest of a number of transactions on which the team has worked with Jellyfish.

Associate Director Ken Wilkinson and Associate Katie Tait advised Jellyfish.

Osborne Clarke’s Corporate team is considered a go-to practice for many companies in the tech, media & comms sector, working with global businesses to fast-growth start-ups and market challengers. The team advises at every stage of company development across all corporate issues, from equity and debt fundraisings to M&A, IPOs and JVs.
