Mills & Reeve

Key people

Philip Way – Partner, Head of Leeds office

What really sets Mills & Reeve apart from other law firms is the way we work with you. We understand that clients no longer want a traditional law firm in the 21st century – you want one that embraces forward thinking approaches to service, billing, commercial know-how, innovation, people management and community engagement.

And what about our actual legal advice? Our concise approach helps to solve the most complex of legal problems. Mills & Reeve routinely performs world-class work for our world-class clients across a wide range of sectors

We have 115 partners and over 400 lawyers ready to address your legal needs. Mills & Reeve has the resources to deal with large transactions, but we still maintain a close relationship with our clients that you would expect from a smaller firm. Our focus is on a personal approach and we strive to match you with the best team, from your client partner to the paralegals and legal secretaries providing that essential support.

Our clients

The success of this approach is reflected in the calibre and variety of clients that appoint us. We work for global PLCs, high net worth individuals, landowners, universities and educational organisations, private and public companies, FTSE and AIM listed businesses and over 100 healthcare organisations.
