CMS

CMS is a future facing international law firm. With 75 offices in 43 countries and 4,800+ lawyers worldwide, and home to business services colleagues across everything from Information Technology, Human Resources and Innovation to Finance, Diversity & Inclusion and Communications. The firm’s core purpose is to build rewarding futures for its clients, people and communities.


In a world of ever-accelerating change where technology is increasingly important in the deployment of global strategies, every team at CMS is empowered to operate and innovate in ways that best meet clients’ needs. We encourage ideas from every corner of our business. We are also committed to addressing our own impact on the environment and approach to sustainability, as well as advising clients with their related legal needs.


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.


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.


At CMS, a next-generation mindset is woven into all we do. We're diverse, supportive and inclusive, embracing our corporate social responsibility and creating a culture of sustainability in which every one of our people, whatever their background, can maximise their potential and thrive.


Whatever your specialism, a career at CMS gives you huge scope to carve out a brilliant career as you help us, and our clients, to face the future with confidence.
