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.
