CMS in Frankfurt am Main



The roots and earliest client relationships of our Frankfurt office date back to the early 1970s, and the firm has been a trusted adviser to businesses ever since. Today, CMS has a team of more than 75 lawyers based in the city’s Riverside Financial District, with the geographical proximity to Frankfurt’s banking and finance centre reflecting the strong position of our banking and finance practice, in particular when it comes to capital market law, asset management and structuring fund products.

Alongside our banking and finance work, our practice also includes private equity, commercial and corporate law, M&A, labour and employment, tax and antitrust law. We regularly advise clients on high-value real estate transactions and can also provide you with specialist insolvency law expertise.
