Aware of following the needs of our customers who invest in the offer of sophisticated and differentiated products, as well as pioneering services, the Technology, Media & Communications (TMC) team of CMS is currently facing an unprecedented change. Innovation is fundamental, in a complex and constantly evolving context.

The development of alternative solutions in environments characterised by new regulatory requirements - at national and international level - is fundamental to ensure the protection of new investments and maximise commercial opportunities.

In this sense, CMS is committed to offering its clients innovative legal solutions and contributing to the success of its activity.
