Why join us? Build the practice you've always wanted

Professionals join gunnercooke to design, set up and scale up the practice they’ve always wanted. From day one our people are encouraged to collaborate with a global community of top-tier experts in just about every corporate and commercial discipline. We support ambitious individuals who want to grow a team over time, those joining with their own associates, small firms or teams of partners, or those who want to leverage our internal market.

gunnercooke is the fastest growing corporate law firm in the UK and is making its mark globally with offices in the US, Germany, CEE, Scotland and England. We are a team of more than 500 professionals, covering a range of corporate and commercial disciplines.

The firm operates as a fee share model meaning our professionals join as self-employed advisors, free to design and develop their own practice. Our people build and work in dynamic teams of their choosing, drawing on specific disciplines from across the firm, to best suit their clients’ needs.

Collegiate working is at the forefront of our award-winning culture, which is what sets our firm apart from the rest. Last year over £12m in fees was referred through our internal network. We encourage our people to connect with colleagues through a strong teamworking ethic complemented by a vibrant event programme, where they can find likeminded individuals with shared values and purpose.

As an experienced advisor in your field, you’ll be confident that you can provide the best possible service to your clients. But you’ll also be given the tools required to manage and grow your practice, working with our in-house business development team and coaches to support you in reaching your goals. You’ll also benefit from our world-class support team, gcTrust, including finance, IT, compliance and marketing.

The flexibility of running your own practice also means you set your targets, you choose who you work with, and decide how and when you work. So, whether you see gunnercooke as a place to develop the niche practice you are so passionate about, are looking to work with the perfect team to service your clients, or want the flexibility to pursue projects alongside your day job, we could be the best career move you ever make.
