Mills & Reeve expands private client team in Leeds with high profile lateral hire

Published on

We are delighted to welcome Andrew Playle as a partner to our growing private client team in Leeds.

Andrew joins the firm from Bond Dickinson, where he has been partner since 2007. Andrew has a reputation within the Yorkshire marketplace and beyond for his excellent private client work and will specialise in working with entrepreneurs and business owners. 

Andrew is joining our successful private client team in the rapidly expanding Leeds office and will be working alongside partner Julia Rangecroft, who has built a thriving practice in Leeds and the North of England. 

Andrew said: “Mills & Reeve’s private client team has an outstanding reputation across the country. I’m genuinely excited to join the firm at a time when they are expanding and am looking forward to playing a significant role in their continued success.” 

The appointment comes after our move to larger premises in Leeds and a commitment to making strategic senior lateral hires to strengthen the team further. As part of that commitment, corporate partner Paul Johnson joined the firm from Irwin Mitchell in October last year, where he was head of the Leeds corporate team. Andrew’s appointment represents another significant milestone in the implementation of the firm’s vision for the Leeds office. 

Chris Belcher, head of Mills & Reeve’s private client team, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Andrew into the team and we have no doubt that his contribution will strengthen an already formidable offering. We are continuing to build on our strengths in the Leeds office and Andrew’s addition is a further step in this direction.”
