New commercial partner set to bring range of sector expertise to Mills & Reeve

Leading national law firm Mills & Reeve has recruited commercial partner Jayne Hussey to bolster its national offering.

Jayne, previously a commercial partner in the Birmingham office of Pinsent Masons, focuses exclusively on private sector corporate and commercial work. She has expertise in end-to-end supply chain management projects, outsourcing arrangements, advising on the structuring of complex contractual arrangements, joint ventures and documenting intra-group transfer pricing arrangements.

Jayne has particular expertise in advising businesses operating in and around the manufacturing sector. Her experience and reputation will also strengthen a number of Mills & Reeve’s key sectors, including health, education, food and beverage and technology.

Building a Birmingham commercial law team has been identified by Mills & Reeve as a key component of increasing growth for the firm in the Midlands, providing much needed support and strength in-depth to the recent lateral hires in the corporate, pensions, tax and employment teams.

Steve Allen, head of the Birmingham office, said: “Jayne is well known and respected in the local marketplace and her appointment will strengthen our national commercial offering and our commercial law capability in Birmingham at a senior level.”

Jayne added: “The Midlands is home to an increasing number of significant industrial and manufacturing clients, who quite rightly want the full range of commercial support on their doorstep. I’m delighted to be joining Mills & Reeve and am looking forward to developing further the firm’s private sector commercial team in Birmingham.”
