CMS is door Chambers & Partners geshortlist als een van de top drie kantoren in de categorie "Law Firm of the Year: Europe".
Chambers selecteerde CMS vanwege haar "extensive European coverage, with over 40 offices across the continent. It offers a fully integrated service, and often handles complex multi-jurisdictional transactions. As well as enjoying a market-leading position in the CEE and CIS regions, it also fields prominent teams in France and Germany, and recently added a new member firm in Portugal. Notable areas of expertise include energy, technology and life sciences".
Cornelius Brandi, Executive Chairman van CMS, zei, "This award is a superb achievement for CMS. Despite challenging conditions in our home market of Europe, we are expanding our client base and competing successfully for business. The recognition by Chambers of our pan-European strength and wide range of expertise confirms to me that our approach to serving our clients is the right one."
Nominaties voor de Chambers Global Online Awards zij afkomstig van editors en researchers van Chambers. De winnaars worden geselecteerd na een beoordeling van de overall performance van de kantoren en hun betrokkenheid bij toonaangevende en innovatieve deals en zaken over de hele wereld.
Brandi vervolgde: "CMS is a market leader in cross-border transactions, examples of which are the acquisition of Swiss laboratory Nycomed by Japan's Takeda covering 12 jurisdictions and our advice to Novelis Inc. on the sale of three subsidiaries in Luxembourg, Germany, France and Switzerland. Our major presence in both France and Germany has enabled us to transact several deals involving parties in both countries, such as Metro's disposal of Media Saturn in France."
