Matthew Layton, Clifford Chance Global Managing Partner commented on the 26 new partners: "I am delighted to welcome to the partnership a group of particularly talented senior lawyers. Each of them has established their credentials as a go-to advisor for clients by virtue of their well-recognized expertise and excellent client service skills. They share a strong international mindset – 80% of the group has already worked in more than one of our offices globally. The make-up of this group also demonstrates the breadth and diversity that will underpin our future success. I look forward to working with them over the coming years as they help drive our progress in a fast-shifting legal landscape."
