Following the recent merger of CMS, Nabarro and Olswang, the 14 partner CMS UK tax group, is already busy and looking to expand.
About the role
The group advises clients of all kinds, particularly across the combined firm’s chosen sectors. We act for listed entities, private companies, PE houses, W&I insurers, funds, start-ups, management teams and private individuals and cover all taxes, both direct and indirect, and in both contentious and non-contentious situations. The work we perform is a healthy mix of transactional and advisory and we pride ourselves on being able to use our technical expertise and commercial acumen to find pragmatic solutions that meet our clients’ needs.
We are looking for two candidates between 1 and 4 years’ PQE.
One of the candidates will have, or will want to create, an expertise in real estate tax with a view to helping the team service our real estate practice (the largest in the UK). However, this need not be an exclusive real estate tax role; the candidate will be able to work in other areas of tax and with other departments and sectors too.
The other candidate would be a corporation tax specialist, who would work supporting our corporate and commercial teams. Again, this would not be exclusive, the candidate would also be able to work in other areas of tax and with other departments.
Candidates will need to be technically excellent (having trained at a well-regarded firm), ambitious and driven, commercially astute and good communicators.
The three legacy teams have rapidly integrated as a single unit and we are looking for team players who will work effectively as part of friendly and ambitious team.
CMS is an international organisation with market leading businesses throughout Europe, The Middle East, Asia and beyond.
CMS, Nabarro and Olswang have recently combined to create a truly modern, ambitious, sector driven and technology focused firm for the future. Together we are the 6th largest UK law firm (by UK revenue) and the 6th largest law firm globally (by headcount) with outstanding global reach: serving 39 countries across 70 offices.
All 3 firms have very similar values running through them which will ring true after the combination. We work hard to be a truly client-focused law firm. That means not just understanding the unique challenges of every market sector, but also providing a service that’s tailored to the needs of each client. Our partners are hands-on and work hard to get closer to clients with everything from joint training initiatives and advice surgeries to visits and social events. What’s more, our teams have the ideal balance of personality and industry expertise to suit the varied needs of our clients.
We welcome and promote diversity among our staff and we are committed to a policy of equal opportunity in all aspects of employment practice.
