The Handbook, currently in its 17th edition, ranks the range of services of more than 800 law firms performing in commercial law. Over about 17,000 clients and 7,000 lawyers were consulted.

A quote taken directly from JUVE states, “In having Nicolas Gabrysch in their team, OC has one of the undisputed market leaders in its ranks. This is, above all, demonstrated by his role as advisor to the Ministry of Economic Affairs. The gradual development of giving advice to start-ups and advising investors accelerated within the last year. The US office at the west coast now exports work to a considerable extent, for example, Bill Gates’ ‘Venture Capital Funds.’”

Other recommended lawyers are Dr Martin Sundermann and Christian Musfeldt, who was described by one competitor as being “very well connected on the corporate side in Berlin”.

With a total of 15 lawyers, Osborne Clarke’s Venture Capital team advises start-ups as well as investors from foundation to exit. Clients benefit, in particular, from the lawyers’ expertise in selected sectors such as Tech, Media and Comms, Life Science & Healthcare, Retail and Energy.
