We have unmatched geographical coverage and more English and US qualified banking and finance partners on the ground in CEE than any other law firm. We are your first port of call whether you are planning a cross-border transaction with a multi-jurisdictional security package or loan portfolio or implementing a first-of-a-kind financing structure in your domestic market.

CMS has a pool of very skilled individuals in the region, and the Czech team taps into that network to provide expertise on cross-border cases.
