What we do

More than 600 lawyers and tax advisors offer advice to SMEs and major corporations throughout Germany on all aspects of national and international commercial law. We have an excellent legal and economic base of knowledge which leads to an extensive range of services covering all areas of law and providing deep expertise of regions and sectors in which our clients operate. This concept enables us to offer advice on transactions and projects as well as on all aspects of day-to-day operations – from a single source!

What makes us different

CMS was quick to recognise the opportunities and challenges of global business, and aligned its service offering accordingly. Efficient cross-border collaboration in multinational teams is a daily reality for us – either within the CMS network or with partner firms from the World Law Group, which provides us with expertise in countries where we do not have our own presence. Over the past decades, our capital markets practice has made itself a name as a highly noted player in the German market. Our know-how goes far beyond finance-related advice, but we offer a particularly close collaboration of experts with multiple specialisations and a truly international footprint.

Corporate Responsibility

CMS Germany has long been involved in charitable activities at the firm and office level through donations and pro bono activities. In 2016, the "CMS Stiftung" (CMS Foundation) was established with the aim of providing qualified legal advice and representation to people in need. Everyone should be able to rely on our legal system, regardless of background, education or social standing. To achieve this, the CMS Stiftung cooperates closely with expert organizations, law clinics and other initiatives. CMS also takes responsibility for the society in which we live and work in other areas, such as diversity and good training and working conditions.
