CMS Russia has laid off 30 staff members in Moscow, including 10 fee earners, in a redundancy round that ended Nov. 27. The Moscow office has cut a total of 29 fee-earner positions and 32 support-staff roles in 2009, following a previous round of job cuts that closed in June. CMS launched its Russia office in January through the merger of the local offices of CMS Cameron McKenna and its French and German alliance firms. The firm attributed the cuts to the significant reduction of work in the Moscow market.
