We have particular experience in the key areas of Infrastructure, Construction & Energy, Funds & Indirect Real Assets and Telecommunications, Technology and Media.

CMS has over 28 lawyers based at CMS Singapore and they are qualified across the UK, Singapore, the US, Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia.  Many also have native bilingual proficiency in many languages, including Bahasa Malay, Tamil, Korean, French, Japanese and Mandarin.
