Starting, and building, a successful business takes a good idea, energy and determination plus the right opportunities and the right people.
Working with, and investing in, startups excites us here at CMS. Working with entrepreneurs on bright ideas, fostering growth and innovation in the tech sector and helping to support the industry stars of the future gets us out of bed in the morning. As an early-stage business, legal advice may be pushed to the bottom of the priority list, not least due to the costs associated with it. However, for a business to scale successfully, especially when investors are involved, having the right foundations are imperative. At CMS, we want to change the way that early-stage companies access legal support. That’s why we set up CMS equIP and its associated programme, equIP North.
CMS is one of the largest law firms worldwide and our more than 4,500 legal professionals work in cross-border teams around the world to offer business-focused advice in law and tax matters.
KYC Hub is a single platform enables us to reduce our processing time, perform due diligence on individual and business customers, monitor customers and their transactions, automate compliance and reporting, perform enhanced checks, and streamline our entire customer onboarding and monitoring process in one secure place.
The process utilizes computing technology and data science to mitigate the risk of financial crime. Using cutting edge technologies such as deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and network science to create an advanced financial crime data repository to keep us and you, as our community, safe.
