Carol Osborne is a partner in the London office and also works regularly in our Los Angeles office. Her broad corporate practice and more than 20 years of experience serving as outside general counsel for a number of public and private companies means she provides strategic counsel to clients on complex transactional and business counseling matters. She advises clients on public and private securities offerings as well as federal securities law reporting and compliance. She also counsels boards of directors and special board committees in connection with corporate governance, significant corporate transactions and fiduciary issues. Her cross-border middle-market mergers and acquisition experience includes advising on investments, acquisitions and divestitures (including distressed and special situations) for private equity, venture capital and strategic investors and structuring joint ventures and strategic alliances. Although her practice covers a range of industries, Ms. Osborne has particular expertise working with manufacturers, retailers and private equity investors in the consumer products industry.
