Value retail brand Guess How much! (GHM!) is the most recent client on its books, from retail investment company Pepkor UK which also enlisted Gordons to work on its recently launched value fashion brand Pep & Co.
Other new business wins during the 12-month period comprise Charles Tyrwhitt menswear, Wren Kitchens, electrical goods retailer Ebuyer.com, discount book seller The Book People, convenience stores Budgens and motoring and cycling products retailer Halfords.
These latest new business wins are in addition to the firm’s existing retail client roster which includes B&M, Costcutter, HSL, Iceland, Morrisons, Nisa, Original Factory Shop, Pavers and West Cornwall Pasty Company.
Gordons managing partner, Paul Ayre, said: “We’ve got decades of retail experience and we’re really bringing that to bear with our clear sector focus. These eight client wins are testimony to our approach to securing new business and the way we carry out our work.
“Our clients value our specialist knowledge of the retail industry and the way we integrate legal advice with entrepreneurial thinking for the benefit of their businesses.
“Our aim is to become the retailers’ law firm of choice by continuing to act and think like retailers before dispensing practical advice that works where it matters.”
