With its line up of experienced practitioners, Gordon Legal’s plan to be the next major national consumer law firm should be taken very seriously. 

The firm includes Peter Gordon; Janine Gregory, ex head of Personal Injury at Slater and Gordon and James Higgins, ex head of class actions at Slater and Gordon. 

The firm plans to go national providing family law, criminal law, wills and estates and employment law services. This is in addition to personal injury, class actions and compensation law.
