About Us

About
us

As a single, fully integrated, global partnership, we pride ourselves on our approachable, collegiate and team-based way of working.

A single partnership, the firm has unrivalled scale and depth of legal resources across the key markets of Africa, the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East and in the core areas of commercial activity:

  • Capital markets
  • Corporate and M&A
  • Finance and banking
  • Real estate
  • Tax, pensions and employment
  • Litigation and dispute resolution

At Clifford Chance, we pride ourselves on combining the highest global standards with local expertise. Our business strategy is underpinned by the drive to provide our clients with a world class service. The 'one firm' global business model that we pioneered continues to stand out in the marketplace;  we are still the only non-franchise law firm with a substantial footprint in all of the world's major markets.

Many of the world's leading organisations look to Clifford Chance not just for legal expertise but for advice on business critical issues and market opportunities. We participate and advise at the highest level of government, business and regulation. Our corporate responsibility programme is the most comprehensive in the industry and something we take extremely seriously as a fundamental part of our commercial life.

Sharing know-how across borders and jurisdictions, building teams of specialist sector-focused lawyers, innovative thinking in terms of products and services, investing in only the most talented people, promoting best practice across all layers of the business, recognising that there is always more that we can do for our clients... these are just some of the reasons why Clifford Chance has become known as one of the world's most highly regarded, forward-thinking and influential law firms.
