Dragons’ Den baker set to thrive with the help of Welsh lawyers


A successful Dragons’ Den contestant is whipping up a frenzy across the baking industry with the help of South Wales solicitors, Watkins and Gunn.


Adelle Smith, founder of children’s baking business BKD, has successfully secured an offer of investment in the latest series of the BBC Two show.


Adelle and BKD attracted the interest of media and leisure entrepreneur Peter Jones after successfully pitching her London-based business, which specialises in children’s baking parties, kits, and events, to the panel.


Following her success, the businesswoman has now instructed head of business law at award-winning firm Watkins and Gunn, Faris Dean, to support the company as it expands.


Mr Dean, is not only a solicitor but also a qualified accountant. He specialises in providing legal support to local and national SMEs and will now work with Ms Smith going forward.


He said: “We are delighted to be working with Ms Smith following her recent successful appearance on Dragons’ Den.


“This investment will be significantly beneficial for her as she looks to grow the business across the UK, and make BKD a household name.


“We wish her every success, and look forward to working with her to make BKD a success.”


Watkins and Gunn, with offices in Cardiff, London, Newport and  Pontypool, provide  a wealth of corporate and commercial services including partnership and investment agreements, buying and selling of businesses and shares, shareholders agreements, advising on commercial contracts anddrafting terms and conditions of business.
