18 gunnercooke partners recognised in Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom 2025  

June 20, 2024

18 gunnercooke Partners are today recognised in Best Lawyers’ Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom 2025. This is the highest number of Partners to be recognised by the publication to date, including lawyers across a variety of practice areas from gunnercooke offices across the UK. 

The prestigious Best Lawyers publication is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication company in the legal profession. It employs a rigorous peer review methodology to select the best of the best in the industry, and each year lawyers must secure enough votes to remain in each new edition.  

Demonstrating the strength of the firm across the UK, the number of gunnercooke lawyers recognised in the 13th edition of the list has increased to 18 from 16, demonstrating how the firm’s Partners are respected by peers and clients alike. 

Additionally, Rob Fawke, Banking and Finance Partner, has been recognised as ‘Lawyer of the Year’, having received the highest overall peer feedback within a specific practice area and geographic region. Only around 223 out of 6,249 lawyers on the list achieve this top recognition.  

Darryl Cooke, co-founder of gunnercooke and recognised Best Lawyer since 2021, added:  

“I’m really proud to see the number of lawyers included in such a respected publication grow each year. It’s a testament to not only their hard work, but also their commitment to going above and beyond for their clients. 

“As a firm, we are dedicated to providing the best service possible, and ensure that our lawyers are genuine experts in their chosen practice area, offering clients true value from people that are trusted to be 100% objective advisors.”
