What the team is known for CMS is still building upon the combined strength resulting from the 2017 merger between CMS, Nabarro and Olswang. The firm is adept in the technicalities of such cutting-edge legal areas as data privacy and cloud computing but most particularly in crowdfunding, where the firm receives numerous plaudits. CMS has been called upon by various trade and policy groups, most notably the advisory boards of All Party Parliamentary Groups on both AI and blockchain.

Strengths"CMS is very strong on payments matters."

"We come across CMS most often in their representation of FinTech disrupters. Day to day we're pitching against them at that end of the market quite a lot."
