Clifford Chance

In 2016, Clifford Chance Procurement started its transformation journey. With a new Procurement Director and the challenge of combining legacy functions into one team, it set itself the ambitious goal of becoming the 'leading legal procurement team.' To achieve this it streamlined its policies and processes, delivered automated tools, improved stakeholder engagement and awareness, and created a centre of excellence – a way of developing closer relationships across all team members regardless of location, enabling the identification of new talent and creating expertise in cross category areas. This year alone we've delivered £7m in savings and 208 projects.
