The Firm

Mishcon de Reya is an independent law firm, which now employs more than 900 people with over 550 lawyers offering a wide range of legal services to companies and individuals.

Based in London and Singapore, the firm services an international community of clients and provides advice in situations where the constraints of geography often do not apply. The work it undertakes is cross-border, multi-jurisdictional and complex, spanning six core practice areas: Corporate; Dispute Resolution; Employment; Intellectual Property; Private; and Real Estate.

Mishcon de Reya has grown rapidly in recent years, showing more than 70% revenue growth in the past five years alone. In 2015, the firm moved into a purpose designed building on Kingsway, and has converted to both an alternative business structure and LLP.

Mishcon de Reya prides itself on the diverse range of people who make up the firm. The central role played by the Academy, the firm’s in-house place of learning, development and new thinking, and its active and innovative social impact strategy are reflected in its Investors in People Platinum standard.


Mishcon de Reya has an ambitious and detailed 10 year vision, backed-up by three year plans. Rather than being considered a necessary support function, Technology is an integral part of the strategy of the Firm and this is reflected both by the level of Tech investment and how Technology initiatives are discussed at the most senior level. This level of innovation and the investment we place in technology has led to us winning numerous awards, including: FT "Innovation in the business of law" and LegalWeek "Best use of technology" in 2017.

We have made an ongoing commitment to technological investment to help us deliver additional value to our clients, and our Technology Department is integral to this.
