We live in a world which is better connected than ever before. This makes the possibilities endless. Delivering great legal work should not have to come at the sacrifice of your family and friends, your health or your other interests.

We will support you in growing your business in the best way to support your professional and personal objectives – because we believe that you can, and should, achieve both.

Work-life balance

As a gunnercooke lawyer, you decide your own:​

•    Targets
•    Pricing structure
•    Colleagues
•    Clients
•    Working hours
•    Working location – whether it’s at home, in a client office or at one of our city office locations.​

Delivering great legal work should not have to come at the sacrifice of your family and friends, your health or your other interests. Some lawyers like to take Fridays off. Some want to pursue other business opportunities alongside their practice. Some want to grow their own team. Joining gunnercooke means you can free up your time to provide a more efficient service to your clients and get the work-life balance you deserve.

Employment partner, Michele Price on Work/ Life balance at gunnercooke


This morning my 5-year-old daughter told me that she wants to be a lawyer when she grows up because she wants to be able to spend time with her children when she’s a mummy too. Being able to spend time with family is not something that’s often said about lawyers. I definitely have gunnercooke to thank for finally finding a work/life balance that actually works.”
