The CMS patent attorney team has received wonderful reviews in the legal 500 directory. I am even listed as having "deep technical knowledge" . Thank you very much to all those who submitted feedback to the legal 500 team.
Regarding our wider IP team, the trade mark attorneys at CMS are now band 1 ranked in legal 500 for the first time.
Of the 121 categories in which CMS is ranked, 72% are in tiers 1 or 2.
CMS is known for its 'very high-quality work' and 'prompt response times', and has a client roster that includes Qatar Airways, Apple and Sanofi. Life sciences specialist Robert Stephen leads the team and recently advised Insmed on EPO oppositions to protect its phase III asset ALIS. Other notable names include Helen Wallis and of counsel Rachel Free, who both have 'deep technical knowledge'. Wallis worked with Microsoft on patent drafting for technology originating from the EMEA region. Also recommended is biotech specialist Jane Hollywood.
