Illegal use of our name

There are a number of illegal scams in operation where the Clifford Chance name and/or the names of our lawyers are being abused.

The Clifford Chance name and sometimes the names of individual lawyers within our firm have been used in various fraudulent scam emails, letters and phone calls. These communications typically seek to attract a victim by suggesting that an inheritance or a job can be obtained by paying an upfront fee. Another variant is to send demands for money in relation to non-existent claims. Sometimes fake documents are sent to the victim.
