About us

Ranked as a Top 10 Global Law Firm, CMS is present in 43 countries and 77 offices worldwide. More than 4,800 CMS lawyers offer you specialist advice on numerous sectors tailored to your needs, whether in your local market or across multiple jurisdictions.

Our team in Chile of 45 lawyers is focused on assisting both national and international clients. We are consistently developing new ways of providing services to our clients, so as to assist you in your key legal issues, in your commercial operations and projects, and in conflict resolutions - always going beyond the legal perspective.

To do this, we select and train lawyers who are highly motivated in taking on new challenges, experienced in the business world, and skilled in creating and maintaining long-term relationships of trust with our clients. Working together with our CMS colleagues globally, we can offer the latest legal knowledge combined with understanding of your individual business needs.

We are good at law, but the challenge to go beyond and participate in our client’s important decisions is what we really enjoy. 

Law-Now is one of the best services I receive. If there is a new case, they will be the first off the mark.

You, the client, are at the heart of our business - whether you are a large or small organisation. Our emphasis is not just on being great technical lawyers, but really understanding your business and your key objectives. One way we do this is by organising CMS into sector groups that operate locally and internationally. CMS’s international sector specialists take pride in understanding your industry and engaging with your company-specific issues.

Our sector insight means we immerse ourselves in the world of your business and we make sure we understand the global business issues you are facing. We have deep local expertise in your most significant jurisdictions as well as all the major global centres and we have established CMS in emerging markets in line with client needs. CMS professionals act as trusted partners, managing your global projects and transactions wherever you need us.

We work with you to define what success means for you and your organisation and we focus on making it happen. CMS takes pride in first-class execution and project management – we deliver results, not just opinions. We will actively ask for your feedback to help us assess and improve our performance.
