Gordons bolts on Bradford’s David Yablon

Gordons has completed its acquisition of Bradford practice David Yablon Solicitors. The deal, which sees Gordons’ headcount boosted by five partners, 37 fee-earners and 21 support staff, increases the firm’s fee income by more than £2m. Gordons managing partner Paul Ayre said the acquisition focuses the firm’s aim to be a major presence in Yorkshire. Gordons plans to retain David Yablon’s office, which is less than 100 yards away from its own.
