Leading international law firm Clifford Chance today announces the promotion of 32 lawyers to the partnership.

The new partners highlight the significant strength and depth of expertise available to the firm's clients across global markets, products and sectors and across a range of areas of real growth potential and risk mitigation for the firm's leading clients, globally. 

Charles Adams, Clifford Chance Global Managing Partner comments, "These new partners demonstrate Clifford Chance's commitment to invest in and promote exceptional talent. They will help us to focus on areas which will deliver outstanding results for our clients and shape our future as one of the world's premier global firms."

  • Ethnicity: 38.5% of the 14 new US and UK partners1 who have disclosed ethnicity identified as under-represented minority ethnic partners2. This exceeds the firm's target of 15% of new partners by 2025 for the third year running.

The promotions take effect 1 May 2023.
