Middle East

Meeting the challenges of your work in an environment that enables you to achieve your full potential

Life at Clifford Chance is characterised by teamwork and support.

We'll get you settled into your team quickly and, right from the start, you'll be given responsibility that will challenge and develop you. You'll work closely with your team members, who will provide support and guidance. Ongoing training and development is woven into our culture, and everyone here is encouraged to take responsibility for their own individual development.

Our regional offices are very modern and situated centrally in their main business districts. Each is fitted with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to ensure you have all you need to maximise your potential and deliver a first-class service.

Each of our regional offices has an active social calendar with planned – and ad hoc – events, ranging from the regional all-firm retreat and the anniversary desert safari, to the annual beach party and charity quiz nights in aid of our varied Volunteering & Pro Bono initiatives.

Ultimately, what makes our working environment truly unique is the people who work here. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive community that highly values all who work for the firm, whether you're a lawyer or member of our business professionals teams. We believe that our working environment, from top to bottom, will support, encourage and enable you to develop your full potential.

Making the move

For many of our lawyers and business professionals, working and living in the Middle East is an adventure into another culture. Settling in the Middle East can offer an unforgettable life experience in and outside of the office. As well as exposure to ground-breaking and innovative work within a dynamic region, you will regularly interact and get to know others with diverse backgrounds – something we view as an essential component of our success.


We recognise that making the move to the Middle East can be a challenging time. We will fully support every step of your relocation. Our experience covers all the practical and cultural aspects of coming from elsewhere to work in the Middle East. We will also assist with flights, shipping of personal effects, and short-term accommodation on arrival.

Regular social events will give you the opportunity to get to know everyone outside of the offices.
