About us

We’re known for being a great place to work and looking
after our people

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

Check out our video below to see our London office as well as some of the great reasons why you should work for us.


Our values

We share a set of values that shape our relationship with one another. We believe in the following principles:

Respect for each other

We treat each other as equals, working respectfully with clients
and with each other – always. Full stop.


Working together

We’re supportive and loyal. We enjoy spending time together and collaborating to develop innovation. We make time for each other, develop skills and share knowledge.

Strong client relationships

We care about our clients’ interests and work to be a genuine consultative partner they can rely on for advice. 

Openness

We balance being sincere and compassionate with being authentic and speaking up if something is wrong.
