Seven generations of the Mann family have been retailing high end jewellery in Gloucestershire since 1741.
Miles Mann is at the helm of The Cotswold Fine Jewellery Group business which has shops in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bourton-on-the-Water, Bath, Berkhamsted and Gerrards Cross. His sister, Casey, manages Bakers Fine Jewellery in Montpellier, Cheltenham.
The group has grown by acquisition, its most recent addition being Percy Davies & Son Jewellers of Gerrards Cross in 2018.
The award-winning group sell antique, vintage and modern jewellery and silverware and offer repairs, bespoke design and remodelling.
The business which has its head office above the iconic Bakers Jewellers building in the centre of Gloucester employs 50 people across its seven locations.
Willans is proud to have a long history of more than 20 years providing legal advice to this family business. In recent years, our corporate & commercial, property and employment lawyers have been advising the group on their acquisitions in addition to general legal enquiries to help support the running of this ambitious business.
Not only does this very successful family business use us for all their commercial requirements but we also look after the family’s personal legal needs.
I have always found Willans to be knowledgeable and prompt. They are true to their word about providing exceptional client care. They know my family, our values and understand our business. I have full trust and confidence in them."
Miles Mann, managing director
