Testimonials

I really appreciate Béatrice Delmas-Linel for her pragmatic advice and her ability to think about solutions outside the box.’

‘The Osborne team has enabled our company to take a very important step in terms of structuring and compliance. The team is very well organized, and responds to our various needs/projects in a reactive manner, while being particularly business and educational oriented.’

‘Their business, legal and regulatory knowledge is an invaluable asset for our company, but what sets them apart is their human qualities! This team quickly understood that the ability to adapt would be a guarantee of success in our projects. I consider them as colleagues and take pleasure in sharing with them on different themes. They are for me a real source of knowledge, complementary to my knowledge of the field.’

‘They were able to adapt their approach with a whole panel of interlocutors (some very accustomed to discussing legal matters, and others very uncomfortable with regulatory concepts). I immediately felt that I could rely on them to launch my projects, and I was able to develop incredible knowledge through their advice and interventions.’

Testimonials

‘The team is very open to communication and is very responsive. They are very friendly in their communications, which makes everything easier. I like that they are not formalistic which also eases the cooperation. It makes it different from big international law firms which are very formalistic in their approach to the clients which as a result makes everything longer (i.e. needless administration/formal etiquette etc.).’

‘Associate- Julia Darcel is very open in communication and has a very practical approach. She truly informs the client about advantages and disadvantages of the case and looks for a right solution. She is very cooperative and open to discussions.’
