Gordons Partnership LLP was formed in 1994 by three lawyers from leading City practices who were fed up with the 'factory' approach to law. They liked the law but not the way law firms operated. The founding partners' philosophy was to provide high quality and practical legal advice at an affordable rate, in an environment that was professional but also friendly and accessible.
Throughout our growth, we have not lost sight of that philosophy.
Our work is continuing but many of our lawyers are working remotely. Please use our direct line numbers wherever possible. Messages left on direct line numbers are forwarded automatically to the intended recipient. Meetings are generally being reorganised as conference calls. Our Guildford office is open but operating with a skeleton staff. Our London office has reduced opening hours - if you intend to visit or make a delivery to our London office please first call 020 7421 9424.
