We are one of the world's pre-eminent law firms, with significant depth and range of resources across five continents. As a single, fully integrated, global partnership, we pride ourselves on our approachable, collegial and team-based way of working. We always strive to exceed the expectations of our clients, which include corporates from all the commercial and industrial sectors, governments, regulators, trade bodies and not-for-profit organisations. We provide them with the highest-quality advice and legal insight, which combines the Firm's global standards with in-depth local expertise.
Many of the world's leading organisations look to Clifford Chance not just for legal expertise but for advice on business critical issues. They place us in this position of trust because:
- We expect our people to put the interests of our clients first: we invest in understanding client organisations, their operating context and the opportunities and challenges they face.
- We give practical advice: we draw on the huge range and depth of our expertise to develop commercial, effective solutions for clients.
- We believe in the power of teams, rather than individuals: to secure successful outcomes, we bring together groups of people with just the right mix of sector, product and jurisdictional knowledge.
- We invest for the future: we have always taken the view that we must invest today to build the firm our clients will need 15, 20 or more years into the future. As a result, our resources are second to none, whether our people, our know-how, our approach to client service, or our sheer geographic footprint across 36 major financial centres across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Given our market-leading position, we also believe we owe it to our clients and our people to be a responsible business. We take a comprehensive approach to managing risk, and our Corporate Responsibility programme is among the most comprehensive in the industry – and a fundamental aspect of the firm's life.
Last, but not least, we aim to be easy to work with, down to earth and approachable.
