A BRADFORD law firm has recruited an experienced solicitor to strengthen its property litigation team.

Gordons has appointed Richard Jobes to its property team, where he will work on a range of property-related disputes.

He joins after spending five years at national firm Eversheds Sutherland, where he worked on high-profile projects including HS2.

Mr Jobes said: “Gordons has a strong brand in the legal marketplace, excellent long-standing client relationships and a great culture.

"It’s a firm which is distinct because of its people and the way they deliver practical advice.

“This approach has seen the property litigation team build up a great deal of momentum both regionally and nationally.

"I aim to build upon these firm foundations by getting close to our existing clients, winning further new business and expanding the team.”

Richard Cressall, head of property litigation at Gordons, added: "Richard is a straight-talker and an excellent lawyer, which is just the type of person we want at Gordons.

"We are all looking forward to working with him to further grow our property litigation offer.”
