Lodders Cheltenham acquires Jordans Solicitors


The Cheltenham office of law firm Lodders has acquired the town’s boutique family law practice Jordans Solicitors.

Family law specialists Barbara Jordan and Erin Sawyer, together with their support team of three people, will move to Lodders’ offices on Imperial Square.

The move represents the creation and introduction of a new specialist family law service for Lodders.

Joining Lodders as a partner, Barbara is an accredited member of Resolution and the Law Society Family Law Panel, she is recognised in the Legal 500 for her ‘determination and focus’. Barbara is a member of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association.

Family lawyer Erin Sawyer moves to Lodders Cheltenham as a solicitor. With a focus on pre and post nuptial agreements, Erin qualified at Harrison Clark Rickerbys in Cheltenham.

The new family team will be part of Lodders’ private client team, led by the firm’s senior partner Martin Green, who said: “This marks the start of an exciting new service offering for our clients.”

Barbara Jordan added: “This is an opportunity to be part of a dynamic firm that has quickly established a reputation for first class client service and legal excellence since it opened in 2013. This is a superb fit for Jordans and Lodders, and an exciting development for Cheltenham too.”

The creation of Lodders’ new family law team coincides with the appointment of two further partners at its operation in the town.

Joining as partners from Maitland Walker LLP in Cheltenham are Nick Rowe, previously head of the employment team at the firm and new Head of Employment for Lodders, and Steve Thomas, a highly experienced corporate lawyer and commercial contracts specialist.

Partner Paul Mourton leads the Cheltenham office. He said: “We launched with five staff and an ambition to grow by adding talented legal professionals with complimentary specialisms to the team. Not two years since launching in Cheltenham, the firm has now more than trebled in size to a total of 17 people.

“I am delighted to welcome all seven new starters to our team, and am looking forward to the next stage in our plans for sustained growth.”

The new hires bring Lodders’ partnership total to 27 and overall staff numbers across its three locations in Cheltenham, Stratford upon Avon and Henley in Arden to over 120.
