Partner returns to Osborne Clarke’s Bristol office to strengthen its corporate team

February 6, 2023

International legal practice Osborne Clarke has continued to expand the corporate team in its Bristol office with the appointment of Louise Grzasko as a partner.

Louise, pictured, returns to Osborne Clarke after more than six years with Cheltenham-based BPE Solicitors, where she held the position of partner and head of the corporate team. 

She trained at international law firm Allen & Overy in London before originally joining Osborne Clarke in 2007.

Her experience comprises a mix of equity capital markets and public and private company mergers and acquisitions and she advises on corporate transactions including initial public offerings, takeovers, schemes of arrangement, demergers, mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures.

Louise said: “I’m really happy to be back at Osborne Clarke as a partner in the firm’s highly regarded corporate team.

“To have the opportunity to develop my practice, working as part of a team of dynamic and expert lawyers, and to contribute to Osborne Clarke’s continuing success is a very exciting prospect.”

Louise will join the 11 corporate partners based in the firm’s Bristol office. Overall the firm’s UK corporate practice includes 36 partners and 65 lawyers.

Osborne Clarke UK head of corporate Dave Ferris commented: “It’s great for us to welcome back to the firm such a talented lawyer as Louise.

“She is an experienced and technically excellent lawyer with a focus on public as well as private company transactions.”

Louise is the latest addition to Osborne Clarke’s growing team of corporate partners, following the arrival last autumn of Matt Lewy, a corporate energy partner from Womble Bond Dickinson, and Tom Lewis, a corporate structuring and simplification partner from PWC.

Osborne Clarke, which employs around 800 people in Bristol, also has offices in London and Reading in the UK along with 25 international locations, including the in the US, Europe and Asia.
