CMS is planning to launch its own fully-integrated office in the Slovakian capital later this year.

Bratislava, Slovakia Krisztian Miklosy

The firm’s UK and Austrian member firms have announced the end of their alliance in Slovakia with 40-lawyer local firm Ruzicka Csekes, which will officially come into force on 31 May. The decision to wrap up the five-year alliance comes as CMS Cameron McKenna and CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz prepare for the launch of a standalone Slovak office in the nation’s capital this summer. It has not yet been decided whether the new office will operate as a joint venture between the two arms – as with the firm’s offices in Istanbul and Russia – or under the exclusive management of Camerons LLP or Reich-Rohrwig Hainz. The opening will bring CMS’ global office total to 66.
