About Us

Who we are and how we work

We are one of the world's pre-eminent law firms, with significant depth and range of resources across five continents.

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

We always strive to exceed the expectations of our clients, which include corporates from all the commercial and industrial sectors, governments, regulators, trade bodies and not-for-profit organisations. We provide them with the highest-quality advice and legal insight, which combines the Firm's global standards with in-depth local expertise.

Last, but not least, we aim to be easy to work with, down to earth and approachable.

Putting clients first

We expect our people to put the interests of our clients first: we invest in understanding client organisations, their operating context and the opportunities and challenges they face.

Giving practical advice

We give practical advice: we draw on the huge range and depth of our expertise to develop commercial, effective solutions for clients.

Creating the best team

We believe in the power of teams, rather than individuals: to secure successful outcomes, we bring together groups of people with just the right mix of sector, product and jurisdictional knowledge.

Investing in the future

We invest for the future: we have always taken the view that we must invest today to build the firm our clients will need 15, 20 or more years into the future. As a result, our resources are second to none, whether our people, our know-how, our approach to client service, or our sheer geographic footprint across 32 major financial centres across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Racial Justice Award

In response to the civil unrest and increased focus on racial equality and justice in the US, the UK, and internationally following the killing of George Floyd, and in particular increased activity by the Black Lives Matter movement, Clifford Chance has launched a Racial Justice Award. 

The Award is open to not-for-profit organisations around the world that help individuals, groups or communities use the law to achieve significant social, inclusion and racial justice impact.
