Clifford Chance LLP provides legal advisory services focusing on banking and finance, capital markets, corporate merger and acquisition, litigation and dispute resolution, and real estate. It caters to pharmaceuticals, automobiles, aviation, construction, insurance, and real estate sectors.[1]


In 1987 Clifford Chance LLP became England's largest law firm with the merger of Coward Chance and Clifford-Turner.[2] Then in 2000 it merged with New York City's Rogers & Wells and Germany's Punder, Volhard, Weber & Axster. This unprecedented consolidation of law firms is one approach to globalization and the increasing number and size of multinational corporations. Clifford Chance's predecessor firms that dated back to 1802 served corporate, individual, and government clients throughout the British Empire, including India, Africa, Australia, and the Middle East. In 2000 some of its long-term clients included Citibank, Midland Bank, Fujitsu Europe, Panasonic UK, and Sumitomo Bank.
