30% Growth for Gordons’ Corporate Team

Wednesday 13th April 2022

Gordons’ corporate and commercial team is celebrating a record year that saw revenue growth of 30 per cent in the last 12 months.

The record was achieved during a year in which the team advised on a number of high profile, high-value corporate transactions and experienced unprecedented demand for support from its commercial contracts experts.

The last 12 months also mark the fifth successive year of revenue growth for Gordons’ corporate and commercial team.

Deals advised on during the period included the sale of marketing technology platform ContentCal to US-based global software company Adobe.

Other highlights were the sale of nursery operator Kinder Haven to Kids Planet and advising motor retailer DM Keith on its acquisition of Ringways Motor Group.

Gordons also launched its start-ups and emerging companies service offered at the beginning of this year, which is led by Amy Pierechod who was promoted to partner in April. Ryan Gracey, who specialises in commercial contracts and leads the firm’s digital and technology service offer, was also promoted to partner at the same time.

Gordons’ corporate partner, James Fawcett, commented: “We have had an exceptional 12 months. Achieving record revenue and successive growth for five years is a testament to both the excellence of our people and the enduring strength of our client relationships.

“We also capitalised upon the expertise we have in advising fast-growth tech, digital and creative companies to launch our start-ups and emerging companies service.

“None of us takes this success for granted but having recently appointed Jonathan Jackson as a new head of restructuring and Ben Roden as a new head of banking, we remain committed to further establishing Gordons as the law firm of choice for quality, growing, entrepreneurial businesses wanting the best service.”

In October last year, Gordons won the corporate and commercial category at the Yorkshire Legal Awards.

The firm’s other corporate and commercial clients include motor retailer JCT600; private equity investor Enact; and retailers Wren Kitchens, Moss Bros, Cloud Nine and Pavers.
