Who we are
Clifford Chance is a leading global law firm. With offices spread across five different continents, we provide exceptional commercial law solutions to clients all around the world. And it’s not just the scale of our operation that sets us apart: it’s our people too. We’re committed to bringing together extraordinary, diverse talent and fostering a culture of collaboration to achieve the best results.
What we do
Our clients look for expert advice and solutions across many different commercial issues, which we divide into six key practice areas: Corporate; Finance; Capital Markets; Real Estate; Litigation & Dispute Resolution; and Tax, Pensions & Employment.
A few recent examples of our high-profile work include: when we advised LV= on its joint venture with Allianz in August 2017, creating the UK’s third largest personal insurer with over 6 million customers and over £1.7 billion annual income. In July 2017, we worked to advise China's leading artificial intelligence (AI) firm SenseTime Group Inc. on its US $410 million Series B round of investment.
How you can get involved
To secure a training contract with Clifford Chance or a place on one of our vacation schemes, you’ll need to show a strong and consistent academic track record throughout your degree. This certainly doesn’t have to be in Law, in fact, 50% of our trainees are from non-Law backgrounds.
There are also ways you can get involved before university. PRIME is an innovative scheme that gives year 12-13 students the chance to spend time at our Canary Wharf headquarters. We also hold immersive, informative Open Days throughout the year.
Remember to mention TARGETjobs when contacting employers!
