Overcoming the overheads of the traditional law firm

As lawyers, we really put in the hours. Working at a traditional law firm, lawyers are under pressure to reach lofty billing targets, to incorporate the associated costs and overheads of running a commercial law firm. If you’re an equity partner, you’re often personally financially liable for everything in your firm.

At gunnercooke, you’re the director of your own business. The mechanics are geared towards you – meaning you can earn more for what you do.

Set your structure


You decide how to charge for your services. Plus, you’ll work with your clients to agree the best pricing structure for them, giving them complete transparency – and ensuring they’ll trust you with future work.


Uncapped referrals

When you recommend a lawyer that subsequently becomes part of gunnercooke, you’ll receive a percentage of their annual billings for as long as you’re both with us. And you can leverage the gunnercooke internal network to gain introductions to new clients.
