We provide the network, the support services, the technology and the facilities to let you do what you do best. No longer will you take up valuable time on admin. No longer will you watch hours disappear off the clock while you’re in meetings that do nothing for your clients and leave you with the same amount of work to do in even less time.
At gunnercooke, you’re not another employee in a long list of employees who need assistance. In the same way that you want to give your clients the best possible advice, our colleagues in gcTrust and gcAssociates want to give you the best possible service – freeing you up to carry out high-quality legal work.

We understand that as lawyers, we’re not trained to take risks. We’re trained to conform. We work within the security and structure of the corporate safety net. We know that breaking free of those shackles and going it alone can be a daunting prospect.
So we’re here to support you in the transition, providing expert legal coaching and running a host of mentoring and development events to ensure you keep growing. These include training sessions that focus on you not as a lawyer, but as a businessperson, helping you with everything from planning to pricing. Every new gunnercooke lawyer has their own personal business coach.
We work with you to set your own targets and then help you to achieve them. But these are your targets and your targets alone. At gunnercooke, we do not set targets for our lawyers. Self-discipline is essential. We give you the support you need. The rest is up to you.
