Exciting opportunity to join our market-leading and growing disputes team.
 

About CMS


CMS is a Future Facing firm.  With 80 offices in 50 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 Role

We are looking for people to join our market-leading, hugely-successful disputes team, which continues to grow. 

Our London-based team advises on a wide variety of international and national disputes, across all the sectors that the Firm specialises in, including TMT, financial services, energy, life sciences and real estate.  The work we do for our clients is often high profile and at the cutting edge of dispute resolution. 


This team has a proven track record of providing practical and commercial advice to a wide range of clients at all stages of the dispute resolution process - from drafting dispute resolution clauses during pre-contractual negotiations, through to obtaining emergency injunctions in situations where assets may be at risk, to litigating and arbitrating complex multi-jurisdictional disputes and enforcing judgments and awards and recovering assets.

You will be expected to provide in-depth case analysis and briefings for the partners and the team whilst being able to manage substantial disputes under partner supervision. You will work directly with clients.  This will include taking instructions and preparing high quality and concise party/party correspondence, instructions to Counsel, pleadings and other court and arbitration documents as required. You will also be able to support the partners with business development opportunities and encouraged to take the initiative in developing your own and the team’s client relationships and market profile.
 


About You


You will have a well developed understanding of litigation, arbitration and ADR procedures with the ability to translate legal theory into practical commercial advice. You will be an excellent communicator.  You must have solid experience within a comparable firm recognised for general disputes work and be able to handle clients in major blue chip companies.  You will be expected to work collaboratively within a team environment and support not only the development of the practice but also the team’s culture and values.

The team is growing and we are looking to recruit at all levels.
 


Equal Opportunities


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.
