Why CMS?

Sector specialists

Strong expertise and high-quality advice delivered from dedicated lawyers working alongside sector specialists including scientists, academics, regulatory, anti-corruption and IP experts, all of whom understand the legal needs and issues of the lifesciences sector.

Working with the lifesciences and healthcare community

CMS Lawyers participate and are invited as speakers in forums and roundtables with key industry bodies, including Eucomed. Through these partnerships, we not only share news and developments impacting the industry and business of our clients in a timely manner, but we also take a role in shaping and drafting policies to ensure that the needs of our clients are met, as they operate in this highly regulated sector.

We regularly work for hospitals and public authorities. Our knowledge of the environment in which hospitals operate and our relationship with the public authorities allow us to provide unrivalled insights and added value to our lifesciences clients.

Trusted advisers with a strong reputation

We work with and have established long-term relationships with the top 100 lifesciences companies in the areas of pharmaceutical, medical devices, biotechnology and agriculture, including most of the top 20 global pharmaceutical companies and the top 10 global medical devices companies. This demonstrates our strength in developing deep and trusted relationships with those in the sector, as we deliver practical, technical and commercial legal solutions. We have been appointed to the European Commission expert group on public procurement and many of our lawyers are recognized by leading legal directories.
