CMS alliance firms forge closer ties in Russia

The Moscow offices of CMS Cameron McKenna are set to unite under one roof in a bid to forge closer ties between the firm’s allied UK, German and French arms.

CMS Cameron McKenna, CMS Hasche Sigle and CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre will occupy 2657 square metres of space in Moscow’s Ostozhenka district, the historical and commercial centre of the city.

It is hoped the move will capitalise on client synergies between the CMS associated firms, although CMS is keen to point out that the firms will maintain their distinct identities and branding.

A CMS Cameron McKenna spokesperson said: “Although we plan to work more effectively together where it makes sense to do so, it won’t mean that we are integrating or losing the individual identities of the three firms.”
