About us

CMS is an international organisation with market leading businesses throughout Central and Eastern Europe, The Middle East, Asia and beyond. We're also founding members of the CMS organisation of major independent European law firms, which brings ten leading European law firms together under one banner.

On the 1st May 2017, CMS, Nabarro and Olswang are combed to create a truly modern, ambitious, sector driven and technology focused firm for the future. Together we will be the 6th largest UK law firm (by UK revenue) and the 6th largest law firm globally (by headcount) with outstanding global reach: serving 36 countries across 65 offices.

The new firm will be headquartered in the City of London with UK offices in Aberdeen, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Reading and Sheffield.

All 3 firms have very similar values running through them. 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.
