CMS has advised Oaktree Capital Management on its investment in Kadans, a property investor and developer. With the help of Oaktree's substantial network, experience and financial resources parties expect to substantially grow the Kadans science-park portfolio and roll it out across Europe.

Kadans has been focusing increasingly on knowledge intensive businesses and institutions since 2010. As a preferred supplier to the sector, it aims to create a pan-European platform providing added value to its tenants in the form of shared services, consultancy, network support and accelerator programs.
