About CIE Legal

CIE Legal is a commercial law firm with a fabulous niche: advising consumer product companies on their day-to-day work as well as the bigger episodes in their lifecycle, such as an acquisition or dispute. We get on with our clients and genuinely enjoy working together. For many, we act as an extension of their internal legal team and work closely with their in-house counsel, senior management and business units daily.

We constantly look at new and innovative ways to deliver our services. For example, we’re currently trialling a Generative AI tool in due diligence and contracts work.

Our values of decency and enjoyment mean we are focused at work so we leave time for play. Based in Southbank, we have a hybrid model of in office and work from home.

Sounds good? We’d love to hear from you.
