Where bright

Clifford Chance offers you the opportunity to join a major practice with an impressive global reach

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. With offices throughout the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, 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.

As an associate, doing this work 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."

Matthew Layton, Global Managing Partner

One Firm, One Team

From your first day, you will be an integral part of the team in Moscow, participating in a wide variety of client projects. Even with our long history, you will find that we are unstuffy, approachable and fun to work with. The formality and hierarchy often associated with the legal profession does not work here: everyone's door is always open and silos are forbidden!

We want to be recognised as the best law firm in which to work, both globally and in Russia, attracting and retaining the very best talent. We seek to achieve this through balanced growth, building solid relationships with our clients and leading and innovating in the way that we work.

Corporate responsibility

At Clifford Chance, we take our responsibilities to our people, the communities in which we live and work, and the environment very seriously. For this reason, we have developed a responsible business strategy that seeks to be fully aligned with our vision to be the global law firm of choice for the world's leading businesses of today and tomorrow.
