Gordons strengthens commercial team with trio of new hires

Tuesday 19th September 2023

Gordons has strengthened its commercial team with the appointment of two new solicitors and a paralegal.

Zara Bojovic joins the firm as a solicitor from consumer credit reporting agency TransUnion, where she worked in-house since 2014.

Ella Fitzpatrick has been hired as a newly qualified solicitor, having completed her training contract at Gordons. During her training contract, Ella spent four months on secondment to Premier League champions, Manchester City FC.

Zara and Ella are joined by Hannah Cottrell, who has been appointed as a paralegal. She will commence her training contract with Gordons in September 2025.

Gordons’ commercial team supports clients with general commercial contracts, IT and technology, and privacy and data matters, and acts for clients such as Wren Kitchens, Moss Bros, Ocado Retail, AO.com, Evri and Sumo Digital.

The team’s revenue has doubled over the past three financial years, and posted 14 per cent year-on-year growth in 2022-23.

Commenting on the new appointments, partner and head of commercial, Andy Brian, said: “We are delighted to welcome Zara, Ella and Hannah into the team. We’ve grown quickly over the past few years and their appointments will set us up well for the future.”

Gordons head of digital and technology, Ryan Gracey, added: “Zara gained a lot of valuable experience on IT and tech projects during her time in-house, and it’s tremendous to have her join the team at such an exciting time.”
