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.
