gunnercooke brings together experienced lawyers across all corporate and commercial disciplines. And we’re always looking to increase the breadth of our expertise – wherever your knowledge lies.

Our practice areas include:

Corporate & Commercial

Corporate lawyers understand the realities of business. You might even have spent time in a commercial environment. So when it comes to negotiating on your clients’ behalf, you do so from a position of real authority – blending commerciality with genuine legal expertise.​

Dispute resolution 

Disputes and litigation are risks that businesses faces daily. We work closely with our clients to minimise the impact of these risks on their businesses. Our lawyers are passionate that litigation should be a last resort. Achieving a commercial solution and, in particular, mediation, is a big part of our culture.

Private client

In practising private client law, you understand that your emotional expertise is just as important as your legal expertise. It’s our job to guide your clients through the whole spectrum of life’s experiences, taking time to understand their needs and provide them and their families with the best possible advice.

Intellectual property

Today’s intellectual property law is about innovation. At gunnercooke, so are we. Advising on everything from launching a brand new product to protecting a global heritage brand, an intellectual property lawyer has a creative and innovative mind. gunnercooke lawyers help clients understand the full commercial impact of IP matters and the way others use their brand, assessing potential areas of risk and enforcing protection.

Employment & pensions

Employment and pensions lawyers understand that even the biggest people projects need an individual approach. Calm, professional and discrete, you’ll give expert commercial advice that helps your clients manage their workforce and comply with their legal obligations, taking the emotion out of difficult people decisions.

Real estate

In real estate, it’s important that your clients feel confident and at ease – that their transactions are in safe hands. So whether they’re developers, traders, corporate occupiers, investors, investment funds or lenders, you’ll be adept at understanding their objectives and acting as a trusted advisor.


As a tax lawyer, you’ll be keen-eyed and proactive. You’ll have an eye on new legislation and developments in the tax field, always keeping your clients informed. You’ll read between the lines, identifying the best structure for your clients’ strategic deals and spotting potential issues before they occur.

International desks

With technology increasing the flow and access of information, the world is becoming more connected. And when you consider the ever-shifting political landscape, your skills as an international lawyer are more important than ever. Many of our lawyers have extensive experience internationally and work across multiple jurisdictions.
