The practice is founded on a full-service US and UK securities law capability, complemented by local securities law expertise in each of the key financial centres.

The corporate practice, which comprises over 790 partners and lawyers worldwide, provides clients with a single law firm that combines a market leading practice with specialist, local expertise. Its global transaction capability includes English, US and civil law expertise in the key financial centres across the UK, Europe, the Americas, Middle East and Asia-Pacific. The practice represents many of the world’s leading multinational and national corporations, financial institutions and sponsors on the largest and most complex transactions across the globe – from public takeovers, mergers and cross border acquisitions to strategic alliances, joint ventures, outsourcings and restructurings. The firm’s cross-border M&A experience is enhanced by a depth of sector expertise across financial institutions, energy and infrastructure, TMT, insurance, healthcare, private equity, real estate, funds and investment management, industrials, consumer goods and retail and transport and logistics.

Finance:
Clifford Chance’s finance practice, which comprises over 700 legal advisers worldwide, is the leading international finance practice of any law firm. The practice provides highly commercial and practical advice across the full spectrum of financial products including syndicated lending and leveraged and acquisition finance, asset finance, derivative products, project finance, financial regulatory, insolvency, restructuring and structured finance.

Litigation & Dispute Resolution:
The firm has a team of more than 470 litigators internationally and has experience in virtually all segments of the business and financial markets across multiple jurisdictions. The lawyers work with clients to resolve disputes efficiently and effectively – whether through arbitration, litigation or other techniques.
