On 11 April 2022, international law firm CMS will move into its new Bucharest office in One Tower, a class A office building that is part of the multifunctional development One Floreasca City, one of the largest urban regeneration projects in the central area of Bucharest.
Horea Popescu, Managing Partner of CMS Romania, comments: “This move represents an exciting milestone for our Bucharest team. When planning the relocation, choosing a premium location in the centre of Bucharest that meets the highest standard of design and services was a priority for us, One Tower being known for its focus on sustainability and user-wellbeing. This new space meets CMS’s vision as a future facing law firm and will further support the firm’s strong and collaborative culture. Following the implementation of a modern design concept, what our people and clients will find here is not just a workplace, but a space for developing and nurturing relationships within the team and with our clients.”
One Tower is the first office building in Romania to obtain the LEED v4 Platinum Building Design and Construction certification, the highest level required by this certification. This is complemented by the WELL Health-Safety certification, which ensures that office occupants have superior health and safety conditions at work.
One Tower’s green footprint is in line with CMS’s sustainability goals and the firm will occupy one-and-a-half floors on a seven-year lease. CMS Bucharest’s new office was designed with exceptional attention to detail to create a welcoming and comfortable working environment for employees, with modern, bright spaces as well as generous terraces and spectacular views. The firm’s office in One Tower integrates the latest technologies, such as high-performance heating and ventilation systems, providing a modern and collaborative space for CMS’s people and clients.
CMS has had a presence in Romania since 1999 and occupied its previous office space for 15 years. The firm currently employs approximately 100 lawyers, tax consultants and staff, making it one of the largest law firms in the country.
The firm’s new Bucharest address is: One Tower, 165 Calea Floreasca, 12th – 14th floors, District 1, 014459 Bucharest, Romania.
