I work with colleagues across the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia offices. While our culture, gender, seniority level, ethnicity, and background are different, we are united as part of a community that Clifford Chance is.
The sense of collaboration, inclusion, mutual respect for each other's ideas, and an understanding of our differences have help us deliver as 'one-team' every day.
One of the outcomes of such an environment for me has been the learning and innovation that comes with cross-cultural teams. Everyone seeks to find a solution throughout the process. A recent example of this is an insights-driven opportunity assessment; multiple ideas generated by cross-geographic teams resulted in a strong outcome.
Clifford Chance is a great opportunity for people who want to make a global career in legal industry.
