Mills & Reeve is looking to expand its corporate team in Leeds after securing client wins and advising on deals worth more than £300 million in the past 12 months.
The deals include several multi-million-pound transactions for a leading healthcare provider.
The team at Mills & Reeve also advised on AIM flotations, raising funds for public companies, private-equity backed deals in the insurance sector, and transactions in multiple jurisdictions, including Europe, South Africa, the US and India.
The law firm has also secured new clients, particularly in the healthcare, insurance and technology sectors.
Mills & Reeve launched its corporate team in Leeds four years ago. It’s currently led by Paul Johnson, who joined from Irwin Mitchell. Johnson said the firm is actively recruiting at all levels in Leeds to meet growing client demand.
He commented: “It is less than four years since we launched the Leeds corporate team and we are delighted to have had a significant impact on the Yorkshire corporate market.”
“Our client base is expanding rapidly, particularly in our target sectors of healthcare, insurance and technology, and we have a growing portfolio of both private and public companies. We have a very healthy deal pipeline and look forward to another 12 months of helping clients achieve their ambitions expansion plans whether through acquisition, merger or raising funds.”
