Gordons experiences turnover and profits jump

Leeds and Bradford law firm Gordons earned £17.1 million in turnover in the year to 31 March 2019.

The law firm’s turnover increased 7%. Net profits jumped 13% to £7.3 million.

During the 12-month period, the firm started new relationships with several companies, including online grocer Ocado, sportswear lifestyle brand Gym King and property developer Carnell Management Services.

The firm was also successful at increasing its business with existing clients, such as retailers AO, B&M, Iceland Foods and Wren Kitchens. During the year, Gordons launched a new technology practice area and signed a three-year partnership with technology investment platform NorthInvest.

Gordons made a six-figure investment in new premises for its Bradford office. The business employs 200 people across Leeds and Bradford.

Commenting on the results, managing partner Paul Ayre said: “We’ve built a lot of momentum over the past two years and the firm is in great shape.”

“Our success is due to some factors which are distinct to Gordons. We’re authentic and relatable. We avoid complication wherever we can.”

“Most importantly, we’ve come to realise that we work best with strongly-led, entrepreneurial clients. We build great relationships with the leaders of these businesses.”

Gordons clients also include supermarket giant Morrisons, construction and high-performance materials manufacturer Saint Gobain and international brewers Molson Coors.
