At CMS, our aim is to be the lawyers our clients really want us to be. Not pedantic pointpickers, but a can-do law firm, packed with people who provide accurate, pragmatic and commercially relevant advice. We think legal excellence, market knowledge, corporate insight, client service and good judgment are all parts of the same package. We don’t distinguish between ‘legal points’ and ‘commercial points. If an issue is relevant to you, then we will understand it and help you resolve it.

The depth and breadth of our specialist teams is second to none. We’ve organised ourselves around the key sectors of the twenty-first century economy and pride ourselves on understanding our clients’ businesses and markets. As well as fielding top-class sector experts in Scotland, we offer our clients full access to the outstanding professionals we have in London and elsewhere. So, on UK-wide matters, or when your business goes abroad, we can go on working right at your side.

In an era of uncertainty and disruption, we’re committed to developing and evolving along with our clients, helping them succeed by adapting to change and seizing new opportunities. That’s why we’re investing in innovative technology to enhance our client services, as well as new business systems and processes, such as our Legal Services Unit in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
