Welcome to our world

Welcome to our world

At CMS we strive to spend more time looking at our clients’ world than inwards at ours.  That’s what makes our approach different. Being able to see things from our clients’ perspective means our people are approachable and accessible. And this means we have a genuinely supportive, open culture you won’t find everywhere. 

CMS in China has been advising our clients since the mid 90s and we provide legal and tax advice to them via our offices in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. As one of the Top 10 International Law Firms in China, we are recognised by employees and the market as an Employer of Choice in 2016 and 2017 that offers excellent opportunities for professional development and growth, a collaborative working environment and good knowledge sharing and business support. 

By joining CMS, China, it also means you become a part of an international team. As a Top 10 Global Law Firm, CMS consists of over 4500 legal and tax advisers located in 74 offices in over 42 countries. It is how we work that sets us apart, combining our deep local expertise with global thinking and international experience. Putting our clients first, ensuring we have a deep understanding of their business and providing them with the best possible service is what defines us.  And our clients tell us that we are succeeding; they like working with us and see us as the human face of the law.  We think this is because we are passionate about building strong, long term and personal relationships with our clients, and really understanding the environment they work in and the challenges they face, wherever they are in the world.

We take the same approach with our colleagues: we pride ourselves on fostering a workplace where everyone is encouraged to speak up, share ideas, seek advice and where ability and commitment is recognised by rapid progression. 

If you share this outlook and you want to be involved in some of the most complex and interesting work, often cross-border, where finding creative solutions and collaborating with colleagues from across our international network is part of daily life, then our world may just be the place for you.

Whether you are a graduate, experienced lawyer or business services professional, we can offer a great place to work, where you and your career really matter to us.
