It is not enough to have an expert understanding of law

Our clients seek commercial acumen; people who can bring their insight and imagination to complex problems. People who can act as trusted business advisers and deliver the results that matter.

Our work is based on a thorough understanding of our clients' immediate business objectives and long-term strategy, their industry sector, their products or services and the commercial reality of the markets in which they operate.


Our experience has taught us how to work efficiently on complex projects and ensure that we use our resources – and our clients' time – as effectively as possible. And clients say that our approach and our talented lawyers deliver the right results.

We work closely with our top-tier clients, addressing the challenges and conflicts they face, being innovative in the solutions proposed, advising on front-page deals, and contributing when necessary with a cross-border service.

London, Canary Wharf

In 1987, today’s Clifford Chance was established when successful London firms Clifford Turner and Coward Chance merged to form the pre-eminent law firm in Europe. The merger was predicated on the shared belief that the world’s leading organisations would seek legal advice that was able to look beyond borders or narrow areas of expertise.

Today we work closely with domestic and international companies, financial institutions, regulators, and government and public-sector bodies. We have invested in order to build a resource that meets our clients' needs. Our London team is integrated with our international network of offices.
