CMS’s office in Reading, just outside London, advises clients in the TMT and Life Sciences & Healthcare sectors. Reading is home to some of the world’s leading TMT and Life Sciences & Healthcare organisations and we set up an office here to remain physically close to these businesses, be accessible and to ensure we can deliver the right mix of legal support these businesses need.

The Reading office works with clients locally, nationally and internationally.

CMS has undertaken a COVID-19 risk assessment to ensure its workplaces and operations are COVID-secure.  Affirmation of the completed assessment can be found here.
