Osbornes  ‘feels like a local firm but with a ‘Big City’ reach’. Mark Freedman ‘is a real heavyweight litigator who has dealt with some very significant cases. He boxes clever, keeps his powder dry and when it comes to the end game he negotiates a really good deal’. Freedman has a specific focus on high-net-worth divorces and finance cases where there are overseas assets and trusts. The ‘very personable and client-focusedLisa Pepper  and the ‘quick-thinking’ Bridget Thomspon  (who is intelligent and pragmatic’) are also recommended, as are Naomi Angell, who is a ‘leading name’ in international adoption and newly promoted partner Joanne Wescott, who is a ‘very approachable and sensible opponent’.
