Changing the face of law.

With more than 70 offices in more than 40 countries and 5,000 lawyers worldwide, CMS combines deep local market understanding with a global overview, giving us the ability to see what’s coming, and to shape it.

In a world of ever-accelerating change where technology is increasingly important in the deployment of global strategies, our clear, business-focused advice helps clients of every size to face the future with confidence. Our collaborative structure means that every team is empowered to operate and innovate in ways that best meet clients’ needs and the coming issues for local markets. It’s an enterprising approach that’s proven to yield great results.

CMS lawyers are genuine experts in their fields, with a grasp of detail that’s second to none. That depth of knowledge gives us the ability to anticipate challenges – and our collective experience gives us the ability to meet them in innovative and sector-shaping ways.

Across our six core sectors – Energy, Financial Services, Infrastructure and Project Finance, Lifesciences and Healthcare, Real Estate and Technology, Media and Telecommunications – we don’t just have some of the brightest and most creative legal minds. Our lawyers are fully immersed in the world our clients operate in; genuine experts in their fields, knowledgeable about the issues you currently face, and those that may lie just around the corner.

We offer various added value services, including Law-Now and the Interactive Media Award winning RegZone which provide practical and timely knowledge relevant to your business and numerous webinars for training at your desk.
