Mills & Reeve ranked third Best Law Firm to Work at by RollOnFriday

Mills & Reeve finished third in RollonFriday’s annual survey with a score of 83%, narrowly missing out on top spot by just 2%.

The survey of more than 8,000 people working in private practice law firms asks employees to rate their firm’s pay, career development, culture, work/life balance and office.

They were also ranked third in best work/life balance with a score of 84%. Staff praised the firm's hybrid working policies and said they're given the "autonomy to be responsible for ourselves". 

Some of the great comments received by Mills & Reeve employees included:

“The real difference is that I have much more control over when I do the hours. My work can flex more at Mills & Reeve, and there aren't that many last minute scrambles for evening calls (and barely any necessary weekend work).”

“[The culture is] still our strength, even if it's hard to distil exactly what it is. Just being decent, normal, hard-working people, I guess. The only issue is that everyone is sometimes too polite.”

Claire Clarke, managing partner at Mills & Reeve, said: “This is fantastic news! It’s great to be recognised yet again as one of RollOnFriday’s Best Firms to Work At and the result reflects our great culture and that people really enjoy working here.

"We’ve been in the top eight firms consistently since 2016 and won Firm of the Year three years running from 2018-2020. Being ranked 3rd this time around is a real achievement, however, we’re a competitive lot so have our sights set on reclaiming the top spot again next year!”
