Gordons appoints new head of banking

Experienced solicitor Ben Roden has joined Gordons as the law firm’s new head of banking.

Roden (pictured), who has joined from DLA Piper, has more than a decade of experience of advising lenders and corporates on a range of financing transactions.

Commenting on his appointment, Roden said: “Gordons is highly regarded within the regional marketplace and beyond. Joining the firm as its head of banking provides me with an excellent opportunity to grow the Gordons banking practice and to work closely with the firm’s fantastic clients.”

Roden’s appointment follows the hiring of Jonathan Jackson, who joined as head of restructuring from Addleshaw Goddard in November 2021.

James Fawcett, corporate partner at Leeds- and Bradford-based Gordons, said: “We’re delighted to have attracted someone of Ben’s calibre to be our head of banking. He is an excellent lawyer who has a wealth of experience and a personable approach.” 

“Together with the appointment of Jonathan Jackson, Ben’s recruitment is another significant step for Gordons and demonstrates our commitment to continuously improve the quality and breadth of our offering.”
