B&M appoints Gordons for Defendant Personal Injury Services

Tuesday 6th November 2018

Leading variety retailer B&M has appointed Gordons to handle its nationwide defendant personal injury (PI) brief as the business continues to grow.

B&M has been a Gordons client for the past 15 years. During that time the firm has sourced and secured more than 500 B&M stores, as well as advising on various other matters.

Gordons’ defendant PI experts will provide B&M with counsel across all aspects of employer and public liability whilst also delivering a comprehensive claims handling and risk mitigation service.

Commenting on Gordons’ appointment, B&M chief executive, Simon Arora, said: “Gordons is a law firm that knows retail. They have played an important role in our growth to date and will continue to do so.”

Earlier this year, B&M posted a 25.4 per cent increase in pre-tax profit to £229.3m, with revenue growing by 22.4 per cent to £3bn.

Gordons managing partner, Paul Ayre, said: “We are proud to be part of B&M’s continued success story. This latest appointment is testament to the fact that we are able to think and act in line with the most dynamic of retailers.”
