International legal practice Osborne Clarke was awarded Best Corporate Culture at last night’s Managing Partners Forum (MPF) Awards.
Osborne Clarke was singled out for its approach to creating a motivational and functional culture that enables its people and serves clients. The judges said the firm has converted abstract values such as diversity, equality, work/life balance, transparency and community care into embedded practices and behaviour. These in turn contribute to the client experience and commercial success.
It was also noted that Glassdoor comments and the RollOnFriday awards reflect the positive impact of Osborne Clarke’s ‘culture is king’ attitude.
Ray Berg, UK Managing Partner, said: “We recognise how important our people are, and we want everyone to have the freedom to be themselves, feel valued for their work and build rewarding careers. That’s why it’s so key that we have a diverse team and a great working environment. At the end of the day, we know that our collaborative culture is a key part of the excellent client experience we deliver.”
In addition to the MPF Award, Osborne Clarke ranks in the top five of RollOnFriday’s independent Firm of the Year employee survey for the last four years, scoring highly for its friendly culture and management. The firm was recognised as Bristol Law Society’s Law Firm of the Year in December 2018 and commended for its Osborne Clarke Solutions work at the FT Innovative Lawyer Awards in 2017 and 2018.
Launched in 2002, the Managing Partners Forum Awards provide leaders and management teams with independent evidence of their contribution to achieving personal and firm goals across leadership and strategy, the client journey, operational excellence and responsible business.
