Insight into a modern firm

It is an exciting time at CMS. Hear from some current and former trainees on their experiences of landmark deals and multi-jurisdictional projects. Trainees who have experienced – and thrived on – all kinds of secondments, who have shouldered responsibility and collaborated with Partners, and who have enjoyed a huge range of professional support and made life-long friends.
