Most law firms look at e-mobility through a single lens. We don’t. We recognise that understanding this industry requires a real knowledge of how areas such as mobility, energy and digital infrastructure, power management systems, software, data and payments solutions interact – and we're experts in all these.

We've built our knowledge and expertise in this area through working with a wide range of industry clients, from established operators to some of the most cutting edge tech businesses currently influencing the international e-mobility sector. We're working with clients across all forms and modes of transport - whether it is electric vehicles, e-bikes, e-scooters or electric trains, we have it covered.

The technology being developed in e-mobility cuts across geographic borders and so do we. With teams on the ground across Europe, Asia and in the US, we’re plugged into the right innovation hubs, applying our legal expertise to technologies that disrupt and challenge the laws that govern it.

Osborne Clarke is proud to sponsor World EV Day, a global campaign established to accelerate the transition to zero emission electric vehicles around the world. Simon Spooner, head of Osborne Clarke's urban mobility team: "World EV Day is becoming increasingly influential at educating consumers, governments, business and society about the vital role that electric vehicles are playing in helping us reach net zero carbon emissions. We will use our support of World EV day throughout the year to promote the work that we and our clients are doing to help develop a truly sustainable transport ecosystem."
