Chris Rae

Chris is a real estate specialist, based in CMS Glasgow. He advises a broad variety of key clients, including Clydesdale & Yorkshire Bank, Wolseley UK, Hargreaves Services plc, Standard Life, Equitix, BASF plc and The Weir Group plc. Chris has extensive experience of handling complex projects.  Chris is also a charities specialist, and sits on the board of various non-profit organisations in his spare time (including The Nepal Trust, and IFDAS). Chris is a CMS CSR Champion, and represents Scotland on the CSR Committee.

Chris is also pro bono partner for CMS, leading projects for pro bono clients such as The Prince’s Trust, Marie Curie, Inspiring Scotland, Project Scotland, and many others. Chris also leads CSR and pro bono projects in partnership with key firm clients, such as Lloyds Banking Group and The Weir Group plc. Chris is keen to ensure that, rather than being responsive to changing cultural and societal needs, the CSR and pro bono focus of CMS (and business in Scotland generally) is thought-leading, ingrained in the culture of business, and part of a coordinated effort to shape the future rather than simply paying lip service.
