Clifford Chance was formed in 1987 and is one of the largest law firms in the world with real breadth and depth of expertise across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa.
Our Paris office opened in 1962 and has been recognised as one of France's leading law firms for over 50 years. We have 37 partners and over 180 lawyers. Our clients include leading French and international corporates, banks and financial institutions. We have developed expertise in a number of sectors in France. Our lawyers have a fine understanding of the legal and economic environment in which our clients operate and can promptly adapt their advice due to relevant business and operational constraints.
Our teams work together with top market specialists in complex areas of law that many firms do not cover, for example, regulatory and state aid, real estate, employee share schemes, and intellectual property. We are committed to delivering a world-class service, providing the highest quality advice and support efficiently and effectively.
Focusing on the future and anticipating evolving client needs is not only about understanding where clients will want legal advice, but how they will want that service delivered. Over the past few years, Clifford Chance has been at the forefront of developments that have fundamentally changed the management of law firms. Our sights are firmly set on staying in the vanguard of the legal industry as it evolves to meet the demands of a more complex, fast changing, connected world.
