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, 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
80% 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.

The Department

Mishcon de Reya LLP has one of the largest and most comprehensive
Dispute Resolution offerings in London; over half of the Firm's
lawyers are litigators. From a core of Fraud litigators we have built
a team that covers most major areas of the Dispute Resolution world
including: White Collar Crime & Investigations, Tax, Competition
and Anti-Trust, International Arbitration, Intellectual Property and
Fraud Defence & Business Disputes. Each dispute requires a bespoke
solution, sometimes aggressive, sometimes measured. We fight our
client’s corner: we take ownership of our client's dispute so that we
can resolve it as effectively as possible. We fiercely guard our
clients' interests.

Commercial Litigation

Increasingly complex ventures and tougher trading conditions have led
to an increase in business disputes. For many law firms, litigation is
a distraction from their everyday focus. For us, dispute resolution is
at the heart of our firm. We are unusual for a firm of our size in
that we remain largely conflict free and able to act on large
commercial disputes with financial institutions.

We act for businesses that range from owner-manager operations to
multinational entities with disputes which cross several
jurisdictions. Our leadership of the International Fraud Group and
membership of LegalLink gives us a reach far outside our London and
New York homes.

Technology underpins everything we do. MDR Discover, our in-house
team of eDiscovery experts, reduces the cost and complexity of
large-scale litigation. We invite legal start-ups into our incubator
MDR LAB, allowing us to experience the next generation of litigation
tools as they are developed.

Our Cyber-Security team MDR Cyber forms a critical part of our
investigatory capability, teaming criminal, civil and regulatory
lawyers with non-lawyer cyber-security specialists. This
online/offline capability allows us to partner with you throughout the
whole investigation process; from discovery, through to managing any
media issues that arise in the aftermath.

We have excellent links to litigation funders and have experience of
creating group litigation claims and shareholder actions, allowing
corporate entities to leverage claims as a potential asset.

We recognise that each dispute requires a bespoke solution. When we
litigate we are known for our assertive style. Our commercial
arbitration team works across a range of sectors, including energy,
mining, construction, finance, telecommunications, shipping, real
estate and life sciences.

Our Services include:

• Shareholder disputes
• Commercial fraud
• Financial
distress & Insolvency

Intellectual property
• Patent and Trade Mark disputes

White collar crime
• Reputation protection
• Property Litigation

embraces diversity, respect for the individual and the expression of
talent, to empower individuals to fulfil their, and the firm’s,
potential. In order to support this, we recognise the importance of
flexible and agile working and are open to having conversations on how
this could work for you and our business.
