CC secures best friends alliance with Indian firm
Clifford Chance (CC) has formed a best friends relationship with Indian firm AZB, with the tie-up going live today (14 January). The two firms have agreed to refer work to each other on a non-exclusive basis, wherever possible, with the goal to intensify the relationship when local regulations permit them to do so.CC senior partner Stuart Popham told Legal Week: "We want to achieve an alliance to provide more efficient cross-border advice. AZB wants to offer clients access to the international network. They also want lawyers to be able to get international experience without leaving the firm."He added: "We would hope that as and when regulation allows, we could grow closer."
