VC specialist von Morrison Foerster becomes partner at Osborne Clark

11. Janu­ary 2018

Berlin — Osborne Clarke expands its Berlin office with a part­ner. As of Febru­ary, Robin Eyben (39) is trans­fer­ring from Morri­son Foers­ter. He worked there for three and a half years, most recently as a senior associate.

Eyben recently regu­larly advi­sed clients from the tech­no­logy, media and tele­com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons indus­tries, prima­rily on finan­cings and tran­sac­tions. He also assis­ted start-ups from incep­tion to exit. After gradua­ting, he initi­ally joined Gibson Dunn & Crut­cher in Benno Schwarz’s team in Munich. Eyben joined Morri­son Foerster’s Berlin office about a year after it opened there.

Osborne Clarke had announ­ced that it would signi­fi­cantly expand its Berlin office. It was staf­fed for seve­ral years by an asso­ciate who was conside­red well-connec­­ted in the VC market there. After his depar­ture, howe­ver, the capi­tal office — in compa­ri­son to Colo­gne and to some extent Munich — did not make much progress in VC. Eyben will now work prima­rily with Colo­­gne-based VC part­ner Nico­las Gabrysch, who also spends a lot of time in Berlin. An asso­ciate will also be added in March.
