Regional Director at Excello Law


We are deeply saddened by the passing of our close friend and colleague, Mukesh Patel on Saturday 18 February 2023.

Mukesh was a prominent member of the Leicester business community who was well known, liked and much respected by all who knew him. As a fellow Director of Team Leicester, he always played an integral and active part in our goal to champion Leicester and Leicestershire’s investment potential on an international stage. 

He was such a kind and genuine soul who always strove for positive outcomes and looked for the best in everything.

Mukesh, you are and will always be sadly missed.

Rest in peace, our dear friend.

Mukesh Patel

Managing Partner at Freeths
