Leeds partner promoted to national role at Mills & Reeve

Andrew Playle, partner in the Leeds office of law firm Mills & Reeve, has been promoted to national head of private wealth to spearhead the growth of the UK practice.

Andrew joined the Leeds office in 2016 from Bond Dickinson and has played an instrumental role in doubling the turnover of both the team and the office. Last year the firm celebrated winning the Private Client team of the Year Award at the Yorkshire Legal Awards. 

Andrew, who specialises in advising high net worth entrepreneurial clients, will continue to be based in the Leeds office. 

He said: “The Leeds team has enjoyed excellent growth over the last few years and is a leader in the Yorkshire market. It now seems like a natural progression to take on the national role. Our multi-awarding winning private wealth practise is an integral part of the firm’s offering and works closely with all teams including corporate and commercial, dispute resolution and real estate to offer clients a complete legal service. I am very much looking forward to help further develop the national practice.”
