We're delighted to announce our UK Managing Partner, Ray Berg, has been included in The Lawyer's Hot 100 2022, which recognises innovative and creative lawyers who have had a successful previous 12 months.
Please see The Lawyer's write-up on Ray below and visit its website for the full Hot 100 2022 list:
"As Osborne Clarke’s managing partner since 1 January 2015, Ray Berg has not only steered his firm through a strategy that has achieved record financial results, he has also done so in a holistic manner that defines success at individual and firm wide levels. More than many firms, Osborne Clarke is characterised by the extent to which it prioritises health, wellbeing and simply doing right by its people and clients.
"Berg, a highly approachable lawyer known for his love of music and ease of manner, personifies this. As a trustee of the social mobility business partnership, Berg has been instrumental in the collaboration between law firms and clients that has supported students from low income backgrounds in their pursuit of a career in business and which has led to more than 700 places being offered during 2021.
"Notably, the Covid-19 pandemic has proved no barrier to Osborne Clarke continuing its own ambitions of investing in its business, with senior hires including heads of diversity and inclusion and corporate responsibility plus the build-out of the firm’s apprentice programme, both for lawyers and business services professionals. Berg is at the forefront of these initiatives as his firm’s star continues to rise."
Peter Clough, Osborne Clarke's Senior Partner, commented: "The Lawyer's write-up for Ray certainly rings true for so many of us at OC. It's an excellent external recognition of Ray's great work and on-going dedication to supporting our clients, people and improving the sector as whole."
