Clifford Chance is a leading international law firm delivering innovative and practical legal solutions to corporate, institutional, and government clients around the world. Our rapid expansion through a series of ground breaking mergers has fostered a culture that is pioneering and entrepreneurial, flexible and open, and which emphasises the fundamental importance of teamwork and of providing rich career opportunities for our people.
Clifford Chance’s international capabilities extend across Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East, providing our clients with local expertise in all major markets and enabling us to build effective teams across practice areas and jurisdictions. At the same time it means unmatched opportunities for international exposure for our trainees and lawyers and the very real prospect of secondments to our overseas offices and to major client organisations. Nearly 80 per cent of our trainees spend six months of their training contract in one of our overseas offices.
Clifford Chance lawyers are engaged in all aspects of transactional, advisory and contentious law for clients around the world. Our scale and reach across six sector-leading practices – Banking and Finance, Capital Markets, Corporate, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Real Estate and Tax, Pensions and Employment – underpinned by our reputation, ensures a steady flow of stimulating and challenging assignments. Work across these practice areas will constitute the major part of your training and future career. However, the firm is also committed to supporting an extensive range of pro bono and community programmes that will bring another dimension to your career and help you to balance your social responsibilities with a full and rewarding professional life.
Clifford Chance is a diverse community of talents. We value different perspectives and backgrounds and the contribution they can make both to our client work and to enriching our working environment. Joining our team you will be working with colleagues from many different countries, cultures and academic disciplines – around half our trainees each year have not studied law.
