Joanna Peltzman joins Osborne Clarke to develop its Environment practice, confirming the firm's ambition to address its clients, which include major French and international groups as well as innovative companies, with an integrated service offering.
After the arrival of Anne Vrignaud in Finance in March, it is now Joanna Peltzman's turn to join the firm. With over fifteen years' experience in leading Anglo-Saxon and French law firms, Joanna has dedicated her career to highly regulated sectors and activities and advises on both environmental and health law.
In environmental law, Joanna advises on industrial risk, pollution and waste treatment. She has also developed a strong expertise in circular economy and sustainable financing, and assists several investment funds on their sustainability issues.
In addition to her environmental expertise, Joanna has built up a solid know-how in digital health, in connection with the regulatory issues raised by the drug, pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology industries.
As an extension of her two areas of expertise, her in-depth knowledge of regulatory matters regularly leads her to advise her clients on the law and regulation of food, chemical and cosmetic products.
Her practice is therefore perfectly in line with Osborne Clarke's strategy which places decarbonization at the heart of its local and international offering. Joanna will work with all the lawyers involved on this major topic.
More specifically, her activity presents strong synergies with the Real Estate and Public law teams headed respectively by Stéphane Catays and Alexandre Le Mière, with Thomas Devred team in Healthcare and Life Sciences, with Lucie Mongin-Archambeaud on compliance issues and Karima Lachgar in green finance.
At this stage of her career, and having noted the strong synergies, the choice of Osborne Clarke was an obvious one for Joanna, who has the project of strengthening a common practice enriched by the complementary views and expertise of her partners.
I was immediately attracted by Osborne Clarke's project. Driven both by a strong team spirit and by the desire to always offer their clients cutting-edge expertise, the lawyers work together with great agility to respond effectively to the issues entrusted to them. This culture of sharing and the constant search for excellence and innovation are the reasons why I decided to join Osborne Clarke. I am delighted to do so.”
Osborne Clarke's new Environment practice is intended to be cross-functional and to answer the many questions that our clients may have in this area, regardless of the sector in which they operate. In this sense, Joanna's background fits perfectly into this approach and allows us to consolidate our ambitious business project. We are delighted to welcome her to our team.”
