Who we are:
Clifford Chance is a leading global law firm. With offices 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 this year include: when we worked on Toshiba’s $5.4billion share placement deal, helped Postera Capital to launch their innovative cryptoasset fund and advised the sponsors of the first commercial scale offshore wind farm in Asia.
How you can get involved:
To secure a Training Contract 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 though – in fact, 50% of our trainees are from non-Law backgrounds.
There are several other ways for you to get involved before university. We offer everything from informative Open Days to immersive placements, including our bespoke programme for first year students. So whether you’re a Law or non-Law student, there’s an opportunity for you here.
Remember to mention TARGETjobs when contacting employers!
