With the coming together of CMS, Nabarro and Olswang in 2017, we have created a new future-facing law firm, one that is well equipped to help our clients tackle the future with confidence.
This means putting our clients’ interests and priorities at the very heart of everything we do. And, in a world of ever-accelerating change, that demands unwavering sector focus combined with quality practice specialism – and of course the best people working for the firm. That’s where you come in…
Who we are
Ranked as the world’s 6th largest law firm by lawyer headcount and 6th largest in the UK by revenue, CMS operates in 40 countries from 71 offices worldwide. Globally 5,000 lawyers offer business-focused advice tailored to our clients’ needs, in local markets or across multiple jurisdictions.
Careers with us
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 they currently face, and those that may lie just around the corner.
Putting our clients first, ensuring we have a deep understanding of their business and providing them with the best possible service is what defines us. We take the same approach with our colleagues: we pride ourselves on fostering a workplace where everyone is encouraged to speak up, share ideas, seek advice and where ability and commitment is recognised by rapid progression.
We reject ‘old-fashioned’, we refuse ‘outdated’, and we embrace everything from new technologies to different ways of working globally. The only thing that is not new is our dedication to our clients and our people. Our people-focused approach attracts some of the world’s biggest organisations and the world’s best talent to our global elite corporate law firm.
