CMS is a future facing international law firm. With 74 offices in 44 countries and 5000+ 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.
We’re a global law firm. We focus on the big and the small. We look to the future and embrace agility and challenge. We are experts in our sectors and have the rankings to back that up. But it’s not all sectors and rankings. We focus on relationships. We’re a community. We look out for each other, encourage everyone to be themselves, and the best version of that. We’re friendly and go-getting. We act with purpose and find passion in what we do. We seek out different ways of thinking and doing. We don’t want everyone to be the same. We know the best route forward is with the most diverse group of colleagues as possible. We’re here to build a better future.
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.
It’s all about relationships. Our relationship with you, your relationship with us, and the relationships we have with clients and the communities around us. We want you to thrive and show your personality. Foster community, work together, listen, be open, and help each other succeed. Act with purpose and find passion. Strive for progress and embrace challenges. Seek out different ways of thinking and doing. We value trust over rules.
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, and whether you’re a lawyer or a business services professional, 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.
