A successful day as gunnercooke hosted a fantastic meet the team launch in Leeds on 01 March. This lunchtime drinks and canapes event was hosted at the popular Blackhouse restaurant in the city centre. It was very well attended with a great mix of gunnercooke partners, clients, intermediaries and recruiters.
Co-founder Darryl Cooke gave an inspiring speech on the firm’s approach and values. He was proud to announce that we now have over 40 lawyers in the Yorkshire hub and that the firm plans to continue its expansion in the region.
One attendee, Rob Pratt, Managing Director of ‘The Other Person’, a brand development consultancy commented on how fantastic the energy and belief in the firm and its growth was. A well-known legal recruiter said that she believes that we offer the best option for senior lawyers with a following.
There is no doubt that Leeds has a vibrant legal market. Over the last couple of years, recruitment has been dominated by the arrival of a number of large regional firms, such as Shoosmiths and Gateley, but the honeymoon period for these firms will now be coming to an end and we should be looking to be the next ‘big thing’. We are clearly on the map and will keep the momentum going.
