Senior Associate, Clifford Chance LLP
Emily Goddard is a senior associate in Clifford Chance’s litigation and dispute resolution group in London. She advises on a range of contentious matters and has particular experience in investigations and regulatory enforcement action, white-collar crime and business and human rights (BHR).
