Partner vacancy



We want to speak to ambitious senior lawyers who enjoy the freedom of working collaboratively amongst highly experienced peers within a high quality brand. People with the appetite and ambition to change the way that legal services are delivered to businesses.

Story so far and our vision
A number of years ago, we decided that we could change the way that legal services were delivered. That we could do them better. Furthermore, we would inspire the greatest legal talent to join us and work in a way that gave them freedom, flexibility and ultimately, enabled them to build stronger relationships with their clients.

Today, gunnercooke is one of the UK’s fastest growing challenger law firms, providing a wide range of corporate and commercial legal services to businesses, banks and financial institutions.
Our commitment remains unchanged – we will challenge, improve and evolve the way that legal services are delivered, and we do it by building an environment for lawyers to both deliver great service to clients, and achieve personal happiness.

Our model is centered around trusted advisors; lawyers who work collaboratively with their clients and advise with the authority of experience. We want to guarantee that our clients will be counselled by seasoned advisors, and to this end – every lawyer at gunnercooke has a minimum of 10,000 hours practising experience.

We are incredibly proud of the culture we have developed within gunnercooke and seek to recruit  talent that will strengthen and develop our vision further.

The gunnercooke candidate
We’re looking for people who have the ability to take a step up, take control of their own destiny and redefine an industry. Technical balance is a must, but at gunnercooke you also need to be able to network, build and sustain client relationships. When a lawyer joins gunnercooke, we provide lots of practical guidance and support on ways to do this.
Key technical attributes we look for:

  • At least 10,000 hours practising experience in a leading law firm (national or international);
  • Business plan which can demonstrate a minimum billing capacity of £150k per annum.
  • Entrepreneurial flair and commerciality 
  • Passion for brilliant client service
  • Ambitious, looking to grow a practice and leave a legacy.
