One of the oldest companies working in the legal field has opened a new office in Bristol.

Established 150 years ago and amongst the world’s best known names in law and accountancy publishing, Jordans Corporate Law Limited recently celebrated the launch of its new office at the M Shed.

The news is particularly significant for Bristol as Jordans – which has branches in London and Edinburgh as well as in several offshore jurisdictions – is headquartered here in the city, employing 185 people locally.

Jordans Corporate Law Limited has been established under the new “Alternative Business Structure” arrangements, designed to encourage new entrants into the legal market, and will offer a wide range of corporate legal, governance and compliance services.

A new team of lawyers, paralegals and corporate compliance experts has been recruited, led by a senior lawyer, Debbie Farman.

Debbie comments:“Jordans is a highly respected name nationally and internationally.

“It totally understands how the worlds of accountancy and law operate and it’s a company that people already trust and want to work with.

“That trust will be critical as we will be extending our offer and looking to provide a lot of additional support services – such as corporate and commercial legal advice, and non-contentious litigation work.”

Jordans CEO Nick Rees comments: “We certainly haven’t entered into this new arena lightly.

“Not least because of the potential for conflict of interests with those clients who already offer similar services.

“Indeed, what we will be offering – and how we offer it – has been largely determined by what our clients have asked us for.

“We are here to continue to support businesses, not to compete with them. By outsourcing services through us, their costs and time frames will be guaranteed – and so too will the quality.”
