Working for CMS

Welcome to our world

At CMS we strive to spend more time looking at our clients’ world than inwards at ours.  That’s what makes our approach different. Being able to see things from our clients’ perspective means our people are approachable and accessible. And this means we have a genuinely supportive, open culture you won’t find everywhere. 

As you would expect, as a Top 10 Global Law Firm, with more than 71 offices in over 40 countries, it’s how we work that sets us apart, combining our deep local expertise with global thinking and international experience. Putting our clients first, ensuring we have a deep understanding of their business and providing them with the best possible service is what defines us. And our clients tell us this works; they like working with us and see us as the human face of the law. We think this is because we are passionate about building strong, long term and personal relationships with our clients, and really understanding the environment they work in and the challenges they face, wherever they are in the world.

We take the same approach with our colleagues: we pride ourselves on fostering a workplace where everyone is encouraged to speak up, share ideas, seek advice and where ability and commitment is recognised by rapid progression. 

If you share this outlook and you want to be involved in some of the most complex and interesting work, often cross-border, where finding creative solutions and collaborating with colleagues from across our international network is part of daily life, then our world may just be the place for you.

Whether you are a graduate, experienced lawyer or business services professional, we can offer a great place to work, where you and your career really matter to us.
