Now Sponsored by Clifford Chance LLP


I’m very pleased to announce that Clifford Chance LLP are now the official sponsors of CONFLICT OF LAWS .NET (which is published in association with Hart Publishing).

Clifford Chance is one of the world’s leading law firms, helping clients achieve their goals by combining the highest global standards with local expertise. The firm has unrivalled scale and depth of legal resources across the three key markets of the Americas, Asia and Europe and focuses on the core areas of commercial activity: capital markets; corporate and M&A; finance and banking; real estate; tax; pensions and employment; litigation and dispute resolution.

Here’s what Clifford Chance LLP have to say about their sponsorship of CONFLICT OF LAWS .NET:

Clifford Chance LLP is pleased to be the main sponsor and law firm partner of CONFLICT OF LAWS .NET.

Clifford Chance has considerable expertise and experience advising on complex conflict of laws issues, and recognises that CONFLICT OF LAWS .NET provides an invaluable resource in this area.

The expansion of the global economy and regulation at a European and international level have increased the importance of private international law, and it is vital that the subject and its role in cross-border transactions should be fully appreciated. This site plays a significant role in keeping lawyers appraised of new developments and offers a forum for exchange of ideas between practising and academic lawyers in countries whose systems of private international law share common objectives, if not common solutions.

Clifford Chance has a number of recognised conflict of laws specialists, including:

  • Andrew Dickinson, a Consultant to the firm in London, is a member of the North Committee (the UK Ministry of Justice’s advisory committee on private international law issues) and on the editorial board of the Journal of Private International Law.
  • Edwin Peel, Fellow of Keble College and a Consultant to the firm in London, convenes the conflict of laws course for the Bachelor of Civil Law degree at Oxford University.
  • Dr Hendrik Verhagen, Professor of private international law, comparative law and civil law at Radboud University, Nijmegen, is an Advocate at the firm’s Amsterdam office.

For further information on Clifford Chance and its conflict of laws capability, please see or contact Audley Sheppard, partner in the Arbitration and International Law Groups (email) or Andrew Dickinson (email) or Hendrik Verhagen (email).

For graduate and other recruitment opportunities, please see the careers section of the Clifford Chance website or contact us. See and Clifford Chance LLP’s dedicated page on this site for general information about the firm.

Needless to say, this is a very exciting time for CONFLICT OF LAWS .NET, and there is a lot more news to come in the next couple of weeks as a direct result of this new sponsorship. We’re very pleased to be working with a world-class law firm and a world-class publishing house, and we will be utilising those relationships for the benefit of private international law scholars and students around the world.
