Globally 4,500 lawyers offer business-focused advice tailored to our clients’ needs, whether in your local market or across multiple jurisdictions.
With the coming together of CMS, Nabarro and Olswang on 1 May 2017, we have created a new future-facing firm, one that is well equipped to help our clients face the future with confidence.
This means putting our clients’ interests and priorities at the very heart of everything we do. And, in a world of ever-accelerating change, that demands unwavering sector focus combined with quality practice specialism.
The CMS Financial Services group comprises more than 70 partners experienced in providing a wide range of services to our clients in the FS sector. We have a team dedicated exclusively to fund formation, and a heavy-hitting regulatory practice to ensure that clients fully understand and are prepared for changes in legislation such as MiFID II, EMIR and SMCR. To help you stay on top of regulatory changes affecting your sector, we provide regular updates through the CMS Reg-Zone, where you can sign up to receive regular updates on the topics that are affecting your industry. Our lawyers are fully immersed in the world our clients operate in; genuine experts in their fields, knowledgeable about the issues you currently face, and those that may lie just around the corner.
