Clifford Chance's Paris office celebrates its 50th anniversary with publication of a book reviewing major events of the past half century
To mark the occasion of the firm's 50 years in the French legal market, the Clifford Chance Paris office has published a book looking at major legal, economic and business events, as well as landmarks in Clifford Chance's own history, in every year since 1962.
The book was written by lawyers from Clifford Chance's Paris office, with important additional contributions from leading academics, clients of the firm and other well-regarded lawyers.
Yves Wehrli, managing partner for Clifford Chance in Paris commented, "The people who work at Clifford Chance are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and bring many different perspectives. Each has made an important contribution to our history. This book is a reflection of our culture and demonstrates our continued commitment to those values that we hold most dear."
Legal services in France
Clifford Chance’s Paris office opened in 1962 and now ranks among the leading law firms in France.
We advise French and international organisations, drawn from the whole spectrum of business, on a wide range of complex legal matters.

Finally, many of our lawyers are lecturers in French universities, participate in conferences and contribute to national newspapers and legal reference works.
Our network enables us to provide our clients with consistent quality combined with rapid response from anywhere around the world.
