How award-winning culture helped us become one of the UK’s fastest growing law firms

December 1, 2021

We are very proud of our culture at gunnercooke and often say it’s the thing that cannot be copied. The thing that sets us apart from the rest.

From our packed events programme to our thriving internal network, from book clubs to fitness challenges, our team regularly has the opportunity to connect both professionally and personally.

Here are 10 of our most popular internal events:

  • The Symposium – the highlight of the year at Oxford University
  • gunnerbookies book club
  • Baking classes with former GBBO contestants
  • Annual autumn walks with pets and families welcome
  • #FitFor2022 sports challenge
  • Speed networking – 5-minute virtual chats with a variety of faces across the firm
  • Regular practice area socials in each region
  • Christmas parties and mulled wine & mince pie afternoons
  • An annual parody video, where you can lip-sync to songs such as ‘I’m Still Standing’ and ‘Proud Mary’
  • Monthly Meet the Team presentations

Working within a network of like-minded individuals you have access to a world of expertise, perspectives, and potential new clients. If one of your clients needs advice on an area of law you don’t specialise in, you can direct them to another gunnercooke lawyer – and earn a percentage of the fee in the process. Once a lawyer becomes part of gunnercooke, they tend to stay for life. This means real, genuine relationships that are nurtured and cultivated over many years.

And don’t just take our word for it… we’ve regularly been finalists at the Business Culture Awards, winning the overall award for culture in 2019.

Many of our people say: ‘I wish I had moved here years ago’ and their happiness has been instrumental to our success.

If our culture sounds like a fit for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here.
