Clifford Chance

We have identified and embedded across our firm the core elements that make up our unique culture – the 'Clifford Chance DNA'. These values, designed to unite, differentiate and help drive priorities and strategic action, make up the eight Clifford Chance Principles.

Exceeding clients' expectations

We are committed to helping our clients achieve their goals by providing commercially focused legal advice of the highest quality that will consistently exceed their expectations.

Local excellence, global standards

We ensure we can benefit our clients by combining the highest global standards of business and law with local excellence of service and by maintaining the depth, quality and scale of resources necessary to meet our clients' needs whenever and wherever they arise.

An ambition for success

We are determined to be the leader of an elite group of international law firms and to be at the top of the profession in each market where we practise. Our aim is to be regarded as one of the world’s leading professional services organisations.

Investing in talent

To deliver on our commitment to our clients, we recruit and develop the best people. We believe that, by delivering great client service, we will be involved in the most interesting and challenging client work and, as a result, achieve the reputation and the high levels of profitability which are essential to attracting and retaining the best people.

An adaptable and approachable team

We believe in the power of collaboration, collegiality and teamwork, and we have an open, approachable style. We expect our people to be flexible and creative and to have the desire and drive to embrace new experiences and challenges. We require everyone to put the interests of our clients and the Firm before their own.                  

Thinking ahead

To be at the forefront of the legal profession requires foresight, a desire to share ideas and a willingness to have a voice on issues of importance. We have the confidence to challenge existing thinking and to push boundaries.

Strength through diversity

We are proud of our firm and value the diversity of the people and cultures within it. In our firm, people succeed according to their merits.


Our strength comes from our 'one firm' approach and our partnership ethos. They underpin our ability to deliver excellent client service and create a working environment where talented people can succeed. We are ambitious for our clients and ourselves, but we understand the importance of making a positive impact on the community at large.
