Mills & Reeve goes on hiring spree in London

Two London firms have lost partners to Mills & Reeve

Masons has lost PFI partner Andrew Ray to the Cambridge office of Mills & Reeve, while Julian Holy partner Tim Ryan is joining the firm’s Norwich commercial property team.
Ray has been a partner at Masons since 1998 and a solicitor at the firm since 1991. He led Masons’ PFI work in South Africa. He has also worked with the Ministry of Defence, the Environment Agency and the Department of Social Security. He will advise public and private sector clients on PFIs and public private partnerships.
Ryan has been a partner at South Kensington-based firm Julian Holy since 1988. He covered residential as well as commercial property at Julian Holy but is moving to a commercial property-focused practice at Mills & Reeve.
Mills & Reeve managing partner Mark Jeffries said that the appointments would enable the firm to widen its influence “in both the eastern region and beyond”.
