We are very proud to accept market recognition for our performance as a welcome indicator that we are succeeding in our efforts to provide you with the highest quality of service and advice.

CMS is listed in the Latin Lawyer 250, the directory of Latin America's leading law firm. The directory writes “CMS has a local presence in Latin America’s two major economies and good visibility in key practice areas […] It is leveraging its English law experience in both countries’ main sectors, notably energy, by striving to provide a local service with the backup of London expertise and experience. While other international firms may be grimacing about the state of Brazil’s energy industry, the country’s market conditions play well to [CMS]’s strengths of oil and gas, insurance and restructuring, to the point where the firm has actually increased its headcount in Rio.”

One client, who retained our Rio office to advise on its entrance into the Brazilian market, commented: “With their combination of international experience and local knowledge CMS has provided us with a unique perspective to doing business in Brazil which we would not have gained had we contracted a local firm. We continue to rely on CMS as a trusted partner for our operations in Brazil and would highly recommend them to other firms seeking associates in Brazil.”
