“The team at Milberg London are consistently innovative, strategic and thorough in everything they do.”
The Milberg London team love working together. Before James, Polly, Ed and JT founded Milberg London, almost all of the Milberg team had worked together. Quite apart from sharpening their legal skills in London’s leading litigation houses over the past decade and more, they’ve formed life-long friendships and had a lot of fun.
James, Polly, Ed and JT worked together for many years at Mishcon de Reya. Their impressive work was recognised in a cover shoot for The Lawyer when two of their cases were featured in the Top 20 Cases of 2016. They developed a reputation for acting in technically complex and legally significant cases, often against large institutional defendants.
In 2020, James, Polly and Ed launched Milberg London and JT wasn’t far behind. From the outset they were keen to build a small, exceptional group of lawyers that would have the talent and tenacity to realise their ambitions. Through a combination of old colleagues and bright new faces, Milberg London made huge strides on behalf of their clients in their early years.
James and Nicola first met at Clyde & Co in 2007 and worked on some of the biggest commercial disputes of the decade such as acting for former owners of Liverpool Football Club in their high-profile claim against former directors and the Royal Bank of Scotland. They were reunited at Mishcon before Nicola was invited to join the partnership at Milberg London in 2021.
Natasha joined Milberg London from Mishcon. Although the team hadn’t historically worked together, Natasha’s sterling reputation was well known and the stars aligned for Milberg London to launch its competition practice with Natasha at the helm.
Milberg London is affiliated with the US firm Milberg Coleman Bryson Phillips Grossman, PLLC (“Milberg”). Since Milberg’s founding more than five decades ago, the firm has repeatedly taken the lead in landmark cases that have set ground-breaking legal precedents and recovered more than $50 billion in the US. Milberg London plans to replicate that success in the UK and help to keep corporations honest and compliant through their group action work.
Milberg London are a close team that love what they do. Using the legal system to try and unpick injustice motivates them all on a daily basis.
