Tim was a partner with Garrets in Birmingham and previously spent 11 years at Edge & Ellison (Hammonds). He has recently been rated as one of the Top 30 corporate stars outside London. Tim specializes in domestic and cross border M&A, strategic alliances, fundraisings and reconstructions and his experience spans the engineering, technology, leisure, retail and financial services sectors.

Guy Hinchley, Mills & Reeve's Birmingham managing partner, commented:

"Tim's recruitment is in response to our clients' requirements for a broader range of services from our Birmingham office. Tim's experience combined with the strength of our existing practices in Cambridge and Norwich will ensure that we are able to meet the requirements of the dynamic Midlands market and expand the geographic coverage of our existing corporate finance team."

"We believe there is a significant opportunity in the Midlands market, particularly in the growing technology sector in Birmingham, to develop a corporate practice with a local base that builds on the quality and expertise of our offices in Cambridge and Norwich. Tim's excellent reputation, experience and contacts in the Midlands market will enable us to do this."

Tim Winn added:

"Mills & Reeve is a dynamic high quality firm. The opportunity to extend the firm's existing corporate, banking and finance expertise into the largest business community outside of London is enormously attractive to me and is the right home for my clients."

Mills & Reeve continues to expand its Birmingham office and earlier this month appointed leading property partner, Mike O'Sullivan, who joined from Eversheds.


Mills & Reeve is a national law firm with 63 partners, 250 lawyers and offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, London and Norwich.

"Chambers & Partners 2003 UK Guide to the Legal Profession" recently ranked Mills & Reeve as second according to the number of recommended lawyers in proportion to the size of the firm in a section titled: 'Law firms punching above their weight'.
