Law firm Gordons has announced six new partner promotions in recognition of each individual’s expertise, entrepreneurial acumen and ability to deliver excellent client service.
Head of start-ups and emerging companies, Amy Pierechod, and head of digital and technology, Ryan Gracey, have both been appointed from within Gordons’ corporate and commercial specialism.
Employment lawyer Bryony Goldspink and commercial property solicitor James Kimberley, who both joined the firm as trainees, have also been made up to partner.
Recent joiners, head of banking, Ben Roden, and head of restructuring, Jonathan Jackson, complete the six.
Gordons partner and member of the firm’s executive board Victoria Davey said: “Promoting so many lawyers to partnership at once is a significant and progressive step for Gordons.
“Amy and Ryan have both done excellent work in building up their technology-led service offers since joining the firm seven and three-and-a-half years ago respectively.
“It is always particularly pleasing to see colleagues who joined the firm as trainees progress to become partners and Bryony and James both thoroughly deserve their promotions.
“Ben and Jonathan are recent joiners who bring new skills in their respective areas and have already made a significant positive impact within the firm and with our clients.
“All six will continue to contribute to Gordons’ success with their expertise and ability to build strong, long-term client relationships.”
