Dispute Resolution Lawyers

CMS boasts an integrated international team of leading dispute resolution lawyers who collaborate closely on advising high-profile multinational and domestic clients on a wide variety of disputes from simple claims to complex, high-value litigation cases. We can represent you in civil and commercial disputes – such as employee, corporate, intellectual property, competition and product liability disputes – and have particular expertise in infrastructure disputes, international arbitration and white-collar crime. CMS UAE offers specific expertise in energy and construction related litigation, and can also assist in relation to insurance claims or disputes with regulators in the energy, telecommunications or financial services sectors.

Unlike most major law firms, you won’t find a litigation department at CMS. What you will find is a team of nearly 600 lawyers who share a refreshing approach to disputes. Our sector-focused lawyers are not just litigators and arbitration specialists, but business-minded problem solvers. We routinely act in all business areas before courts, arbitral tribunals and regulatory authorities. We can handle your dispute across any jurisdiction, obtain judicial assistance in foreign proceedings and deal with enforcement procedures for foreign judgements and arbitral awards.
