Osborne Clarke in job loss talks with 13 lawyers

May 16, 2013

Bristol-headquartered international law firm Osborne Clarke has confirmed it is entering a two-week consultation that may result in some compulsory redundancies.

The consultation affects a number of UK lawyers.

A spokesperson said: “We have had to make an extremely difficult decision in putting up to 13 of our UK lawyers at risk of redundancy. This is due to a structural overcapacity at associate and senior solicitor level. This equals just over 2% of our lawyers.

“The lawyers who are at risk of redundancy are spread across the London, Reading and Bristol offices.”

The firm held merger talks with City firm Field Fisher Waterhouse last year.
