Yorkshire law firm Gordons expands commercial team with new hire from Addleshaw Goddard

Yorkshire law firm Gordons has expanded its commercial contracts team with the appointment of solicitor Lauren Wills-Dixon.

She joins the firm from the Leeds office of Addleshaw Goddard where she was an associate in the commercial team. The appointment marks a return to Gordons for Lauren who previously worked at the firm as a paralegal in 2016. Whilst at Addleshaw Goddard, Lauren spent six months seconded to the legal team at Asda.

Gordons is a retail specialist law firm with clients including AO, B&M, Freeman Grattan, Iceland Foods, Morrisons, Moss Bros, Oak Furniture Land and Wren Kitchens, so Lauren’s appointment complements the team’s expertise in the sector.

Commenting on her appointment, Lauren said: “I enjoyed my time at Gordons, so it is great to be back. What sets the firm apart is the strength of its brand, the sense of togetherness of its people and Gordons’ ‘one firm’ mentality. This translates directly into the way they go about providing practical advice to their clients.”

Welcoming Lauren to the firm, partner and head of commercial, Andy Brian, said: “We are delighted to welcome Lauren back to Gordons and to the commercial contracts team. She is a technically capable lawyer who will fit into the team well and get on with our clients.

“Her retail sector experience is extremely relevant to us. As Lauren did with Asda, I also spent time working in-house with one of the country’s major retailers, and I know just how invaluable that direct sector experience will prove to be.

“Our commercial contract work is up year-on-year despite us being in the middle of a global pandemic, which speaks to the quality of our client base and the trust they have placed in us in these difficult times.”
