Rhiannon Thomas


Originally from Cape Town, Rhiannon Thomas is an lawyer, mediator and values consultant who founded Milkwood Law in 2012. Her clients tend to be individuals, young businesses and NGOs. She drafts values-based legal documents in plain English, which seek to build relationships, rather than focusing on the end of a relationship. These contracts use the parties’ joint goals, vision and values as their starting point. She currently lives in a small village in Oxfordshire, where she loves taking long walks in the surrounding countryside.




A world founded on love, collaboration, connection, peace and openness. A world in which law is an honourable profession and lawyers are trusted advisors and peace builders.


To offer the best, most meaningful encounter that a person can have with the law and a lawyer thereby changing people’s impressions of lawyers.
Inspire other lawyers to reassess the way in which they practise law and serve their clients.
Assist people to address change and engage with conflict in a positive way that creates greater well-being for all concerned.
