Job Details

Join a team that is going places.

The CMS FIRA (Funds and Indirect Real Assets) team in Singapore is looking to hire a senior associate to drive the continued growth and development of the team.


About CMS
CMS is a Future Facing firm. With 79 offices in 45 countries and 5,000+ lawyers worldwide, we combine deep sector understanding with a global overview, giving us the ability not only to see what's coming, but to shape it.


CMS is well equipped to help our clients face the future with confidence. We are driven by technology and readily embrace the possibilities it opens up for developing new and better ways of delivering legal services. Our bold approach to a changing future ensures that we nurture our employees and recruit top talent.


About the RoleWe are ranked by both Legal 500 and Chambers as a leading international funds practice in Singapore and have gone from strength to strength since launching six years ago.

The Singapore FIRA team is part of the wider CMS Funds Group that comprises over 100 funds specialists across nearly 20 jurisdictions. CMS itself is the fifth largest law firm in the world by number of lawyers with nearly 5,000 lawyers working across 77 offices worldwide.


About You
We are looking for an accomplished and confident senior associate who can take the lead on high profile fund launches, fund investments and joint ventures.

We expect you to be technically strong with solid experience gained in a leading funds team. We have a deep and varied practice and from day one you will need to be keen to work outside your comfort zone, including across sectors and time zones and on new and developing areas of law and technology. The clients that you will work for will include institutional investors, fund managers and MNCs, as well as entrepreneurs, tech platforms and first time fund managers. Rest assured that more often than not the work will be both technical and challenging. We want you to be intrinsically involved in the success and development of the team, the office and the firm. We will offer you first class training and support in all of the above. International training opportunities are available and encouraged in normal (non-Covid) circumstances.

Our ideal candidate would:

- have experience of advising both GPs and LPs in connection with private funds matters
- have had exposure to the real estate, PE and/or tech and VC sectors
- have worked on a range of funds structures, including limited partnerships, VCCs, trusts and corporate funds, as well as cross-border JVs and club funds
- have worked as part of a high performing team on large international funds or structured real estate / corporate transactions
- be comfortable developing their own profile in the market, as well as championing the FIRA SG team both within CMS and in the wider market
- be Singapore qualified
- have a life outside of the office (really)

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, 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.
