Mills & Reeve boosts Leeds family team

The Leeds office of national law firm Mills & Reeve has appointed Ellen Lucas as an associate in the family team.

Lucas (pictured), who has joined the team from Jones Nickolds, advises on a wide spectrum of family law, including complex financial matters, cohabitation and child arrangements.

She joins the family team at Mills & Reeve, which the firm says has a formidable reputation both in the Yorkshire region and nationally for its knowledge of family law and commitment to clients, at a time of expansion as it continues to secure new talent and client wins.

Philip Way, family partner and head of the Leeds office at Mills & Reeve, said: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Ellen to the firm and I’m confident she will be a great asset to our family practice.”

“The expansion of our team and the Leeds office is gathering pace and our reputation for being a great place to work is demonstrated by our recent ranking in the UK 100 Best Companies to Work For 2021 list which saw the firm placed 23rd, and also achieved an impressive second place in Law’s 20 Best Firms to Work For. This is a fantastic achievement and will help attract more highly-skilled lawyers as we continue to grow our team.”
