Legal Week Innovation Awards:Christopher Mills

18 August 2016

Schillings Partner & COO, Christopher Mills, has been named outstanding innovator of the year by Legal Week at their 2016 Innovation Awards.

The judging panel cited Christopher's role in helping transform Schillings from a boutique media law firm into an international reputation defence and privacy protection business. Key to this was his leadership in repositioning the firm and bringing together specialists in law, intelligence, cyber security and risk consulting.

“His role as a non-lawyer partner in the firm’s ABS and his achievements reflect the growing importance of non-lawyer managers inside firms,” said Legal Week editor Georgina Stanley.

Christopher's win follows a sustained period of award wins for Schillings, including the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards, The Lawyer Awards and The Modern Law Awards, as well as shortlists in the IRM Risk Management Awards and the CIR Magazine Risk Management Awards
