Gordons strengthens leadership team with two new partners

Law firm Gordons has further enhanced its leadership team with the promotion of two lawyers to partner.

Commercial litigation lawyer and the firm’s head of wellness and inclusion, Catherine Woodward, and head of regulatory, Simon Tingle, will play central roles in Gordons’ ongoing growth and development.

Catherine joined the firm in 2011 and qualified as a solicitor in 2015. She is a past president of Leeds Law Society and has a broad range of experience in litigation including contractual disputes, shareholder disputes, banking litigation and intellectual property.

Recent joiner Simon is a regulatory, investigations and corporate defence lawyer with a particular focus in the retail, consumer, transport and logistics sectors.

Commenting on their promotions, Gordons managing partner, Victoria Davey, said: “Catherine and Simon are excellent additions to our partnership. They are both progressive in their outlook and are outstanding lawyers who are able to build lasting client relationships.

“It has been a pleasure to see Catherine grow both personally and professionally since she joined the firm and she now has the opportunity to help further shape Gordons’ future.

“Simon joined us last November and has made a big impact since arriving at the firm. He is providing our existing clients with an enhanced regulatory service and has secured a number of new business wins, including sports goods retailer Decathlon UK.

“Catherine and Simon have demonstrated their ability to provide practical legal advice and build relationships of trust. These are key values to our firm and we look forward to both of them further realising their potential as partners.”
