What can I do for you?

I’m the finance director for Mills & Reeve. This means being responsible for the firm’s financial health, finance planning, management reporting systems and finance and facilities operations. Ensuring the firm is successful allows us to continue to invest in talented lawyers and expert know-how systems to deliver the service our clients expect.

Supporting our clients

Part of my role is having responsibility for the finance team. You may have had some contact with my team through client money transactions, updates on fees and I hope, limited contact from my credit control team! Clients like the transparency of cost we provide through accessing our online system Dialogue. E-billing is becoming more popular and increasingly clients are finding it helpful to have a named point of contact in the finance team for administrative questions.

What do others say?

Our lawyers say they enjoy the professional support we provide allowing them to concentrate on providing outstanding client service and not spending unnecessary time on administration. Our clients say that the regular reporting and work in progress updates help them manage the cost of our services.

What else should you know?

I’m a chartered accountant, a committee member of the ICAEW Solicitors Special Interest Group and a member of the Legal Finance Forum which focuses on best practice and debates latest developments. My network of other Chief Finance Officers, bankers and accountants helps to provide the latest thinking from other sectors.
