Brachers partner Alexandra Gordon has been appointed President of Kent Law Society (KLS), after holding the position of Vice-President for one-and-a-half years.
Now in its 202nd year of operation, KLS exists to promote the interests of the legal profession in Kent and be its voice locally. It provides members with training, marketing, recruitment, guidance, networking and social interaction. It represents the complete spectrum of the profession in Kent, from large, medium or small firms to sole practitioners, interacting with politicians, policy makers, the media, and potential new entrants to the profession.
Alexandra is a highly regarded private client partner at Brachers, advising clients on tax and estate planning, Wills, trust creation, estate administration and lasting powers of attorney. Qualifying as a lawyer in 2010, she has spent much of her career working at firms around Kent.
One of the youngest ever presidents of the KLS, Alexandra has been named an eprivateclient ‘Top 35 under 35’, and Citywealth ‘Top 100 Future Leaders’. She is ranked a ‘Next Generation Partner’ by Legal 500, and ranked individually in band 3 in the Chambers High Net Worth guide. Alexandra is involved with the University of Kent’s Kent Law Clinic, and is a Chartered Tax Adviser.
Alexandra now works out of Brachers new Canterbury office which recently opened to members of the public for pre-arranged meetings in a COVID-secure setting. The opening of this office in East Kent was part of the firm’s 125th anniversary celebrations.
Commenting on her appointment, Alexandra Gordon said: “In such challenging times, I am excited by the opportunity to support the legal community. As President of the Kent Law Society I have made it my mission to promote mental health within the profession, which is so important when many of us are still working from home and not interacting with other lawyers in the ways we were used to.
“KLS plays a key role in supporting and promoting the profession in Kent. I have played an active role in the society for seven years and to be appointed to this position is a great honour. I am really looking forward to taking up the reins alongside my work at Brachers and helping drive the society’s activities forward.”
Joanna Worby, Brachers Managing Partner, said: “Congratulations to Alexandra on her much-deserved appointment. In Brachers’ 125th year it is great to see that one of our own has again taken on the helm of our profession’s voice within the county. There are challenging times ahead for many in the profession but I’m confident that Alexandra can be our voice and provide the support we all need.”
Alexandra carries on a long tradition of Brachers supporting KLS. In all, she is the sixth president from the firm – the others were Philip Bracher in 1955, his son George Bracher in 1977, Geoff Dearing in 1993, Nick Rennie in 2002, and John Pritchard in 2007.
Alongside Alexandra, several other Brachers staff also currently volunteer their time to KLS, including private client executive Sophie Wallace, solicitor Sarah Wimsett, and trainee solicitor Sunil Landa.
Alexandra officially took up her position during a virtual ceremony on 16 October 2020.
