Looking after all corporate needs
CIE Legal have advised Optimus Group on everything from M&A transactions to corporate structures and company secretarial work. Optimus points out the importance of day-to-day governance work as well as more high-profile transactions, saying, “the governance element is particularly important at the moment because the level of scrutiny for proper corporate governance and compliance, particularly for cross-border companies like ours, is increasing. It’s great that Daniel Marks and the team are there to make sure we dot the i’s and cross the t’s”.
“Lean and keen”
In looking for a corporate adviser, Optimus wanted a firm that was big enough to be able to handle cross-border transactions but small enough for Optimus to be a valued customer. “CIE’s partners and associates are responsive and available to me when I need them”.
Optimus particularly appreciates Peter George’s approach. “He also has a real knack of being able to see, not just one step ahead, but several. It’s the ability to see the whole picture and anticipate things that sets Peter and CIE Legal apart”.
