Mills is in the throes of a divorce from former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney. Litigation specialist Julius is known for representing high profile figures in divorce cases, having represented Princess Diana in her divorce from Prince Charles.

A Mishcon de Reya spokesman confirmed that the relationship had come to an end after 18 months.

Julius has knocked up 195 mentions in the national press for his work on the Mills and McCartney divorce.
