Where bright
minds meet


Clifford Chance offers law students the opportunity to join a major US 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."

Charles Adams, Global Managing Partner
