Thanks for your interest in the Senior Associate Knowledge Lawyer position. Unfortunately this position has been closed but you can search our 227 open jobs by clicking here.

You will be an outstanding lawyer and are likely to have significant experience of working in contentious regulation.  You will either be a Knowledge Lawyer or be looking to a knowledge-based role. 


We are looking for a lawyer who has developed exceptional written and oral communication skills, with experience of complex regulatory matters. The ideal candidate will have strong technical skills and be comfortable researching and applying complex areas of law, as well as an ability to explain clearly and to guide others. Expertise in a particular area, such as criminal litigation, would be welcome but is not necessary. We would also expect to see a mature approach to business development, both with specific clients and with industry organisations. Fundamentally, we are looking for someone who is looking to move to an even more demanding and stimulating challenge.

Variety of cases: RIFC, as described above, handles a variety of work.

High profile work: high value, international cases, with high stakes and complex issues, for and against household names.

Responsibility: from an early stage, you will be encouraged (and expected) to take responsibility for your own work and make your own judgements, drawing on support where necessary.

Remuneration: Our remuneration package is one of the most attractive in the market.

Development: As well as recruiting the best people, we insist on the professional
development of all our employees. Our lawyers work continuously to develop both legal and personal skills through the training programmes offered by the Clifford Chance Academy.

In order to provide outstanding client service, we need to understand, anticipate and fulfil the unique needs and expectations of each client. We call this "Client Focus" and to help deliver this core part of our business strategy, we want to recruit lawyers who not only have the very highest level of technical skills but are also Client Focused.

As a lawyer at Clifford Chance your remit will be to apply your full knowledge of the law within your specialist area by identifying legal issues, drafting and advising clients.
