About Us

Our storyA different kind of law firm

Law is inspiring – it is alive with opportunity and possibility. Yet for too long it has been constrained by tradition and the status quo.

A number of years ago, we decided that we could change the way legal services are delivered. That we could do them better. At gunnercooke, we believe the potential of our clients and our people rests with our ability to free the law and make it work as it should. Today, we attract passionate lawyers and advise with authority: every gunnercooke lawyer has a minimum 10,000 hours practising experience.

Flexibility, transparency and freedom guide everything we do. Flexibility for our people to work how they want. Transparency of cost for our clients because we removed time recordings and billable hours. Freedom for our people and clients to achieve their personal and professional aspirations.

We work with clients that believe tradition is there to be tested, not obeyed. Working together, we help them seek opportunities and push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Providing a suite of corporate and commercial legal services, gunnercooke is one of the UK’s fastest-growing challenger brands. Proud of what we have achieved, committed to doing more.
