The way we do business is driven by our values-based Code of Conduct, and the implementation of our related policies contributes to Clifford Chance's leading reputation.
During FY23, we advanced core aspects of our ways of doing business. This included the further rollout of the Code of Conduct, launching the ’Speak Up’ programme of our Code of Conduct, and a global review of our standards for Anti-bribery and corruption.
We have a longstanding track record of using technology effectively to deliver client service. Our Enterprise Risk Management Framework, Information Governance and Data Privacy Frameworks alongside our Operational Resilience strategy are embedded globally, and include robust steps and processes to manage technology and data in a secure way.
Our approach to doing business responsibly included continuing to build our expertise in advising clients on legal and regulatory issues in relation to emerging technologies, which also includes questions on use of generative AI.
Our approaches to climate change and human rights also continue to be developed with our Responsible Business Board, in consultation with relevant stakeholders in the firm. They include the integration of our Climate Change Policy into our matter acceptance processes and the ongoing further development of our approach to assessing the human rights impacts of the work we do.
