Mills & Reeve named UK law firm of the year

We have been named UK law firm of the year 2018 at the British Legal Awards.

The firm beat off stiff competition from Shoosmiths, Weightmans, Stephens & Bolton, Osbornes Law, Keystone Law, Harbottle & Lewis and Gunnercooke to land the prestigious award from Legal Week

The judges were particularly impressed by the firm’s growth and ambition, as well as our exemplary talent management and employee development programmes.

The accolade follows on from the firm being shortlisted for law firm of the year at The Lawyer Awards earlier this year and is the first time Mills & Reeve has won a national award. 

Claire Clarke, Mills & Reeve managing partner who collected the award on behalf of the firm, said: “This accolade is reward for the hard work and dedication of all our people who every day go out of their way to do the best they can for our clients, the firm and each other. 

“We believe our success stems from our highly commercial approach, the deep relationships we develop with our clients, the quality of our people and our collaborative culture.”
