Middle East

At Clifford Chance you will connect regularly with colleagues around the globe to find solutions for our clients

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 them world leaders in their own sectors. They are looking not only for legal expertise, but also 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.

The intellectual challenges at Clifford Chance are extraordinarily rich. Client matters rarely fall conveniently within one practice area, so our people have to combine their expertise to cut through the most complex of problems. Our lawyers advise internationally and domestically: under common law and civil law systems; in local and cross-border transactions; on day-to-day operations; and on the most challenging matters.

Working for Clifford Chance means you'll have to consider every angle. You won't just think through a problem; you'll think around it. You'll also connect regularly with colleagues around the globe. Across borders, languages, and legal systems, you'll work together to find solutions. It's this sense of collaboration that truly sets us apart.

Our vision

"We will be the global law firm of choice for the world's leading businesses of today and tomorrow. Attracting and retaining the best talent is central to reaching this goal."

Charles Adams, Global Managing Partner
