Wendy Hopkins Leads Changes to Cardiff’s Legal Landscape


The highly respected Cardiff lawyer, Wendy Hopkins, is the driving force behind the Family Law department at the newly established Gordon Dadds Wales; the Mayfair-based law firm that opened in Windsor Place, Cardiff on 5 June 2014.

Renowned for her expertise, Wendy is Wales’ most experienced family law specialist, who has worked in the area for more than 30 years; creating two firms which still carry her name today.

Wendy said: “This is an exciting time in Gordon Dadds Wales. Gordon Dadds is a leading and independent law firm with an excellent reputation for corporate, property, commercial litigation, private client and family work – so I am delighted to be playing a part in what is the creation of a new legal centre of excellence for the people of Wales.”

She continued: “The firm’s creative and energetic approach to business is very supportive and I am looking forward to working alongside our new recruits: Kelly Lewis, Solicitor and Veena Velani, a Para Legal, as we continue to develop Gordon Dadds as a niche law firm in the Welsh market.”

Wendy and Nigel Morgan, partner, a well-known and highly respected member of Cardiff’s business community as well as Sheila James, were recruited by Gordon Dadds to build the new legal and property services firm that will serve the Wales and the South West with an investment backed by £200,000 business finance from the Welsh Government to create 14 jobs.

Wendy added: “The firm’s presence in Wales is recognition of the region’s rapidly expanding financial and professional services sector. It also signals significant change in our legal landscape as the team driven by Nigel and I take Gordon Dadds Wales forward.”
