Clifford Chance appoints 22 new partners

10 May 2010
Clifford Chance has today announced the election of 22 lawyers to its partnership. The new partners are drawn from 14 offices, across all practices and regions of the Firm, including four new partners in Clifford Chance’s Asian network which has experienced solid growth over the past year.

As well as further strengthening major practices such as Corporate and Finance, this year’s appointments include a higher than usual number of new partners in Litigation and Dispute Resolution where the Firm continues to build its reputation as the leading international practice.

David Childs, Clifford Chance Global Managing Partner comments:
“It is always a pleasure to welcome the next generation of talent into the partnership. These new partners all enjoy strong client relationships and have a deep understanding of the markets, sectors and regulatory issues that are so important to global businesses today. Moreover, they make an invaluable contribution to the development of the firm through their personal investment in expanding the firm’s intellectual capital, in fostering our talent and through their active involvement in important pro bono activity. I look forward to working with them all.”
