About Mishcon de Reya

Mishcon de Reya is a law firm with offices in London and New York. Founded by Victor Mishcon in a one-room office in Brixton in 1937, we now employ more than 500 people, with over 300 lawyers offering a wide range of legal services to companies and individuals.

In every area of the law that we operate, Mishcon de Reya prides itself in providing a best in class service to its clients. Specifically we offer the following legal services: corporate; dispute resolution; employment; family; private client; and real estate. An entrepreneurial spirit - where candour and involvement are key - characterises our ability to develop and execute the strategies required to achieve our clients’ goals in all these areas.

We are an independent firm with an international footprint that extends far beyond our offices in London and New York. A large part of our business is advising on multi-jurisdictional transactions and disputes; established links with overseas practices help serve the needs of our increasingly international client base.

Our clients are dynamic and sophisticated and we reflect that in our belief in challenging the conventional or accepted ways of working. We like to solve problems quickly. We fiercely guard our clients' interests, recognising the significant nexus between business affairs and personal affairs and the ways in which this affects our clients.

We appreciate the privilege of sitting alongside our clients as a trusted advisor. Building strong personal connections to our clients and their businesses is important to us. It is for these reasons we say 'It's business. But it's personal'.
