Mills & Reeve celebrates recognition in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2024

We have maintained our reputation as one of the best law firms in England and Wales by featuring in The Times’ annual guide for the sixth year in a row.

The recognition, alongside 249 other legal practices in England and Wales plus Scotland's top 20, is for outstanding work across a wide range of our legal activities. 

We have been commended in nine specialisms: administrative & public law, commercial property, company & commercial, education, employment, family, inheritance & succession, landlord & tenant and mergers & acquisitions. 

The report gives particular mention to some standout work the firm has achieved including advising the Wellcome Sanger Institute on a $28 million investment in Mosaic Therapeutics allowing Mosaic to advance its pipeline of targeted oncology therapies. 

It also recognised our work advising the Maritime & Coastguard Agency on a £1.6 billion contract to deliver its second-generation search-and-rescue aviation programme. The agency provides the UK’s maritime and coastal search-and-rescue team with emergency co-ordination and response services. The ten-year contract was awarded to Bristow Helicopters. 

Statista, an international market research firm, asked solicitors and barristers in England, Wales and Scotland to recommend the best law firms in any of 28 categories covering business, public and private-client fields.
