“There are many things that make Osborne Clarke special, but it all starts with our people. This is a place where high performance and a great culture sit side by side, where everybody is focused on our clients and also on supporting each other and where concern for quality and having fun aren’t contradictory. One of the best things is that we're always learning, as a business, as individuals and from each other – that's something we encourage from day one and throughout your career at OC.” - Conrad, Managing Partner, UK

Inspired by … change

At Osborne Clarke, the challenges of tomorrow are the focus of today.

By zeroing in on Digitalisation, Decarbonisation, and Urban Dynamics as the key areas transforming the way we live, work, and do business, we’ve been able to hone our knowledge and expertise to the changes that will have the biggest impact both for our clients, and the world around us. Our three-dimensional approach to client service combines sharp legal expertise, an in-depth understanding of our clients and the sectors they operate in, and the global issues driving transformation across their businesses.

You’ll have the opportunity to help our clients tackle their most pressing issues. With the knowledge and expertise gained from the best legal training, combined with industry insights gained via high-level client exposure and maybe even secondments, you’ll be helping our clients to make the best choices for their business today and tomorrow.

Whether that’s helping them with contracts as part of their digitalisation projects, tackling carbon regulations, and moving to sustainable commercial and financing practices, to implementing employee contract changes concerning the future of work.

"It takes curiosity, creativity, and original thinking to help our clients tackle the challenges of Decarbonisation, Digitalisation, and Urban Dynamics, making it fascinating work. There are brilliant opportunities to shape successful and exciting careers around these future-defining issues of universal relevance – and no better place than Osborne Clarke to build those skills." - Catherine Hammon, Digital Transformation Knowledge Lawyer 

Inspired  by… our clients

Industry leaders and market disrupters, household names, and start-ups. Our clients represent a broad cross-section of businesses with differing interests, locations, and cultures.

But what they all have in common is that they come to us time and again to help meet their biggest challenges. Whether that’s commercial contracting, financing, real estate, or disputes, they know that the curiosity, drive, and outstanding expertise of our lawyers will deliver the results they need. We work in partnership with our clients to become an extension of their team - so much so, that many of them ask us for secondees, meaning you’ll have the opportunity to experience first-hand the day-to-day challenges they’re facing, grow your network and develop an insider sector insight that can be used to shape your career.

Inspired by… each other

As an international firm, we know first-hand what inviting a diversity of perspectives delivers – creativity, innovation, and a truly inspiring workplace.

That’s why there’s no one type of Osborne Clarke lawyer. And why your story, your ideas, and who you are matter from Day 1. Because we never just see a trainee, we see a bright mind with a fresh perspective. At Osborne Clarke, your opinion counts, and your voice is heard – even when it’s not the loudest in the room.
