Legal Services Unit (LSU) lawyers

Value for money and securing first class legal advice, delivered to you in the most efficient and cost effective way, is a top priority for organisations.

Our Legal Services Unit (LSU) provides access to a range of alternative sourcing options, from our strong in-house paralegal team, to the extensive CMS network, to working with our legal process outsourcing partner Integreon (or your choice of LPO). Able to meet large scale and multiple language requirements, we have the right flexible legal resource to help you.

Using CMS’ LSU means you can benefit from measurable cost savings, full scalability of support and a track record of delivering.

Ideal for helping you deliver the more routine, volume or process-led elements of projects and transactions more efficiently, the LSU provides a team of skilled paralegals and other solutions for the tasks that don’t always need to be done by a senior lawyer.

The LSU has substantial experience in all of our sectors and practice areas. Backed up by extensive templates, guidance and systems we can design a cost-effective and smart legal solution for you. Our team works seamlessly with our lawyers, providing the right mix of people, process and technology.

Based in our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices, our LSU works on both domestic and international matters. Being based in our offices means we ensure collaborative working with our lawyers and the work remains closely supervised - ensuring quality, efficiency and peace of mind from a top 10 international law firm.
