Local law firm wins contract with festive family game


Regional law firm Watkins and Gunn is getting an early start on the Christmas spirit by helping to bring Scrooge to a new gaming audience.


The firm, with offices based in Cardiff, Newport, Pontypool and London, recently acted on behalf of the makers of a new board game due to hit the market in time for the festive season.


Following the high-profile appointment of Faris Dean to spearhead the business law team at the firm, the new recruit has wasted no time in winning new contracts.


Mr Dean has acted on behalf of board game creator Peter Gerring, providing legal services relating to the raising of finance.


A twist on a classic Christmas tale, Scrooge The Board Game, is a strategic survival game, urging players to navigate 56 different streets of London while avoiding Scrooge’s tricks and traps, while interacting with five different decks of cards.


The game, inspired by the Gerring family’s Dickensian appreciation and love of board games, is now available to back on Kickstarter and has received almost 200 pledges to date.


Faris Dean, Head of Business Law at Watkins and Gunn, said: “We’ve had an incredible response to our business law services so far, and it’s been a great experience to represent such an exciting local business as it gets its bearings. I have no doubt that the game will be a huge success, and that families will love coming together to play Scrooge during the run up to Christmas.”


Peter Gerring discussed his relationship with the firm, saying: “Watkins and Gunn has been instrumental during our journey of bringing Scrooge The Board Game to the market, and working with Faris has been a wonderful, professional experience. We’re looking forward to continuing the relationship for future endeavours.”


Watkins and Gunn offers a wide range of legal services including Accident Claims, Medical

Negligence, Wills and Probate, Employment Law, Education Law, Public Law, Business Law, Divorce

and Family Law, Childcare Law, Criminal Law, Road Traffic Law and Property.


It now provides 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 and drafting terms and conditions of business.
