David Mills - Mills & Reeve LLP

Within: Employment

Mills & Reeve LLP provides 'a very good, efficient service'. 'The advice is always pragmatic and useful', remarks one client. National head of employment David Mills leads the practice from Cambridge. He has 25 years' experience and advises business of all sizes from small start-ups to plcs on the full range of employment issues including board disputes, contractual matters, restructuring, redundancies, business transfers and dismissals. With associate Andrew Secker, who focuses largely on TUPE transfers and restrictive covenant disputes and is described by clients as ‘a very practical and knowledgeable lawyer who provides clear and thoughtful advice', Mills handled a court action for a business and its US subsidiary facing the enforcement of post-termination covenants against two new hires. Stuart Craig leads on work for health sector clients in the East of England and London, acting for, inter alia, national NHS bodies, acute NHS Trusts and clinical commissioning groups. Veteran employment lawyer Ian Mather has nearly 35 years' experience and counts employers such as Olympus UK among his clients. James Kidd leads the employment, pensions and immigration department in Norwich and is 'an excellent lawyer with some good junior support'. Consultant Tracy Yates, education specialist Nicola Brown and principal associates Rebecca Cockerill, Alex Russell (who is 'very competent, efficient and responsive') and Patrick Gass (who is 'very approachable and a pleasure to work with') are also recommended.
