Mills & Reeve named as one of the top law firms in the UK for fifth year running by RollonFriday

Mills & Reeve is ranked in joint second place with an overall score of 88% in RollonFriday’s Firm of the Year 2021.

This continues the firm’s success in the award after winning outright in 2020 and 2019, sharing top spot with Osborne Clarke and Burges Salmon in 2018, and coming joint fourth in 2017 - the first year of participation.

The overall score of 88% sees an improvement on last year’s winning score of 87% despite the huge challenges of the past year.

The annual RollonFriday survey asks partners and staff to rate their law firm on pay, work/life balance and career development, as well as their firm’s management, culture, and response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Claire Clarke, managing partner at Mills & Reeve said: “This has been a very difficult 12 months with the majority of our people having to suddenly work from home overnight while also adapting to all the other challenges thrown at them with the coronavirus pandemic. We have all worked hard to pull together and support each other during these challenging times while also responding to the needs of the business".

“This result and our consistently strong performance over the last five years is further evidence of the strength of  our culture at Mills & Reeve, and the spirit of ‘Achieve more. Together’."
