Our Story

A number of years ago, we decided that we could change the way that legal services were delivered. That we could do them better. Furthermore, we would inspire the greatest legal talent to join us and work in a way that gave them freedom, flexibility and ultimately, enabled them to build stronger relationships with their clients.

Today, gunnercooke is one of the UK’s fastest growing challenger law firms, providing a wide range of corporate and commercial legal services to businesses, banks and financial institutions.

Our commitment remains unchanged – we will challenge, improve and evolve the way that legal services are delivered, and we do it by building an environment for lawyers to both deliver great service to clients, and achieve personal happiness.

Our model is centered around trusted advisors; lawyers who work collaboratively with their clients and advise with the authority of experience. We wanted to be able to guarantee that our clients would be counselled by seasoned advisors, and to this end – every lawyer at gunnercooke has minimum 10,000 hours practising experience.

We also wanted to work with our clients in a way that givesconfidence. Our clients told us that hourly billing and time recording did the opposite – so we removed it. gunnercooke works with clients on a solely fixed fee basis.

Our ambition is tall – we want to be recognised as the leading law firm in the world, through brilliant client service. To do this, we knew that we needed to offer more than solely legal services, and develop other businesses that would help our clients too.
