Lawyers for a changing world

The scale and quality of our legal resources across the key markets of Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East are unrivalled, and reflect the areas in which our clients are operating.

We pride ourselves on the service we provide to our clients, many of whom are world leaders in their sectors. In addition to legal expertise, they are also looking for advice on business-critical issues and market opportunities. Our lawyers and business support professionals are committed to providing focused "one firm" solutions to our clients, wherever they are located, across different jurisdictions, time zones and cultures. We find new ways to build relationships and deliver the results that matter. It takes immense drive and motivation to stay ahead in a world that's changing as fast as ours. If you're excited and inspired by that, Clifford Chance could be the right firm for you. Our firm has more tier-one rankings in the cross-border tables of Chambers Global than any other international firm.

What our lawyers do

Our ground-breaking deals put us at the heart of international business events as they unfold.

Our commercial lawyers make many of the high-profile and influential deals in the world happen, whether it's building a stadium, funding a global bank, leasing a fleet of airliners, providing complex regulatory advice, or arranging a merger between multinational companies.

Corporate law provides the code that governs how these deals take place. Often though, the corporate legal framework hasn't anticipated the types of transactions and ways of working that happen in our modern world. We help clients to understand how this legal code affects them, and, more importantly, the best ways of working within it.

It's interesting and challenging work. Each country has its own laws and set of regulations. What's easy in one place can be difficult in another, and impossible in a third. Our remit as lawyers extends beyond individual jurisdictions, across Asia Pacific and globally. We need to understand all the dynamics and find the best possible solutions for our clients. We blend legal expertise and business focus with a truly international outlook.

What makes Clifford Chance lawyers different?

Firstly, our collaborative and adaptable culture. We work together across borders, languages and legal systems, sharing insights and expertise to achieve our clients' commercial goals.

Secondly, we're pioneers, working on many 'first of their kind' deals.

Finally, it's the nature of our people; highly professional and self-assured, with an entrepreneurial streak, they embrace our culture of learning, and are more than happy to share their expertise and knowledge.
