Clifford Chance

Committed to legal
excellence across the world  


International law firm Clifford Chance combines the highest global standards with local expertise.

 

Origins

Leading lawyers from different backgrounds and nationalities come together as one firm, offering unrivalled depth of legal resources across the key markets of the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

The firm focuses on the core areas of commercial activity: capital markets; corporate and M&A; finance and banking; real estate; tax, pensions and employment, funds & investment management and litigation and dispute resolution. Through a strong understanding of clients’ cultures and objectives, Clifford Chance draws on the full breadth of its legal skills to provide results-driven, commercial advice.


Philosophy

 

We have never been afraid of being the first to respond to new developments in the legal market; to anticipate the cross-border nature of business today; to take ideas that worked in one part of the world and to apply them, with thought and flexibility in another. Our working environment – the people who work here, the work that we do, the facilities we enjoy and the way we behave – reflects these international aspirations and makes the most of our multicultural strengths. As well as recruiting the best people, we insist on the professional development of all our employees. Our lawyers work continuously to develop both legal and personal skills through the training programmes offered by the ‘in-house’ law education system.

In addition our community affairs programme covers pro bono legal work, community education, charity initiatives, and support for the arts. Our aim is to use our expertise and resources to help to change people’s lives for the better. 

 

Working with communities all over the world, we are committed to contributing positively to society, improving access to justice, being environmentally conscious and acting with corporate social responsibility.

Clifford Chance has more leading global practices than any other firm (Chambers Global 2010) and further recognition includes: Most Innovative Law Firm: Financial Services (FT Innovative Lawyers Report 2010).
