International legal practice Osborne Clarke has strengthened its litigation and banking practices with the appointment of two new Partners, Rob Horne and Max Millington

A well-recognised name in the construction field with a strong market presence, Horne joins Osborne Clarke’s Construction Disputes team on the 1 November.

Bringing more than 20 years’ worth of experience and a proven track record of growing teams, Horne advises on construction, engineering and infrastructure projects particularly those arising in the transport infrastructure sector where he is described by Legal 500 as ‘highly innovative’. He provides clients with focused strategic advice from a technical construction perspective on dispute avoidance and dispute management in relation to large and complex infrastructure projects in the UK and internationally.

Prior to joining Osborne Clarke, Horne most recently spent two years at Simmons & Simmons and before that, more than ten years at Trowers & Hamlin.

Millington was previously at Freshfields and will join the London Banking team. He brings expertise in advising financial institutions, sponsors and borrowers across the credit spectrum in relation to leveraged financings. He is a specialist in debt funds, regularly acts in the distressed opportunities market and has authored articles on debt-funded public acquisitions.

Ray Berg, UK Managing Partner Osborne Clarke said:

“Robert and Max are both highly regarded practitioners. Their strong sector focus and technical and commercial know-how make them a great fit for our clients, our business and our people. We look forward to having them at the firm and to the contributions they will bring in growing and diversifying our existing Litigation and Banking practices.”
