Birmingham benefits from growth of international law firm

August 7, 2023

International law firm gunnercooke launched its Birmingham office in 2021. Two years on, gunnercooke is making waves in the international market and is attracting some of the best legal talent and clients. 

Helen Miles, a Pensions Partner based in Birmingham, is a key legal figure in the region and has been in the pensions industry for nearly 30 years. Helen is also in her second term as Chair of the NHS Pensions Board, appointed by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

Helen discussed her time at the firm so far, saying: “I found gunnercooke because I could see how it would let me explore other opportunities.  My own ‘work/life balance’ isn’t just about managing one job. I’m able to do several roles.”

“The Birmingham office enjoys a central location in a prime position on Colmore Row, making it easy to be a part of the city’s thriving professional services community.  But my legal practice operates across the UK and overseas, and I’m able to work alongside with colleagues throughout the gunnercooke partnership.”

Latest hires in the gunnercooke Birmingham office include Prem Ahark, a family Partner. Prem has been a lawyer for over 20 years and is ranked as a Recommended Lawyer in The Legal 500. She also has a judicial appointment and sits on the Valuation Tribunal.

As the fastest growing law firm in the UK, gunnercooke now has over 400 lawyers across the UK, Germany and US, 21% of whom are ranked in legal directories. The firm has been recognised by over 70 major awards, including winning the 2023 LexisNexis Law Firm of the Year.
