Over eight years ago Richard Mills established Mills & Co Solicitors in order to offer a cohesive package of services. As a Solicitor specialising in construction law and also a Chartered Surveyor, Richard is in a near unique position to optimise his clients' performance in delivering and closing-out projects. As well as drawing on his experience as a Solicitor, Richard Mills is also a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and a member of the Society of Construction Law. In 2010 Mills & Co evolved into a partnership between Richard Mills and Roger Button who had previously been a partner at Shadbolts LLP and Eversheds LLP.

As a dual qualified specialist in construction and law, Richard is a 'one stop shop' - ideally suited to owning client requirements from start to finish. Richard qualified as a Chartered Quantity Surveyor in 1991 having gained his first degree in 1988. He initially worked as a site-based quantity surveyor with John Laing Construction, before moving to Davis Langdon & Everest in 1990. He then read Law at London University and was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1994. At this time he also moved to EC Harris where he put his dual qualifications into practice specialising in construction and engineering claims and contract advice.
