Tailor-made advice on corporate law with strong partner involvement worldwide
We offer a seamless cross-border service with strong partner involvement. The size and international presence of CMS enable us to provide the right advisors for every matter, whether you need an experienced lawyer with specific industry expertise as your day-to-day contact or a larger team to handle an M&A transaction.
Where complex legal issues are involved, such as when restructuring companies, we bring together experts from corporate law, tax law and other areas to develop a bespoke solution for your business. The same Corporate/M&A partner always remains your point of contact, continues to coordinate the project and is personally responsible for the matter. Personal service and maximum client confidence are thus ensured throughout.
Comprehensive knowledge, a long track record and in-depth industry expertise are all hallmarks of our service.
