CMS is an international organisation with market leading businesses throughout Central and Eastern Europe and beyond.

Together, they have 60 offices across 29 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America. Each CMS firm is well established in its own jurisdiction and well versed in multi-jurisdictional projects.

We work hard to be a truly client-focused law firm. That means not just understanding the unique challenges of every market sector, but also providing a service that’s tailored to the needs of each client. Our partners are hands-on and work hard to get closer to clients with everything from joint training initiatives and advice surgeries to visits and social events. What’s more, our teams have the ideal balance of personality and industry expertise to suit the varied needs of our clients. 

We're considered more accessible than many of our competitors. Our clients tell us they like working with us and that we're seen as the human face of the law. Independent surveys also reveal that our own people think we're down to earth and that our partners are very approachable. 

Working here, you can expect an open, welcoming atmosphere, as well as supportive colleagues who share their expertise. You’ll have the chance not just to progress quickly, but also to make lifelong friends in the process.
