Osborne Clarke senior partner Leslie Perrin has announced he is retiring from the partnership after 16 years with the firm.
Perrin, who spent nine years as managing partner, has played a key role in growth of the Bristol-based firm.
Perrin said he was leaving Osborne Clarke to pursue a fresh career outside the firm.
“I have derived enormous pleasure from leading Osborne Clarke over the past 12 years, first as managing partner and then as senior partner,” he said. “During that time, OC has developed from a regional firm to an ambitious player established in the London corporate market and on the international stage.”
