About their firm

gunnercooke is an award-winning corporate and commercial law firm founded to challenge, improve and evolve the way legal services are delivered to businesses.

We were established in September 2010 and in December 2015 reached over 100 partners, operating nationally from offices in London and Manchester.

The firm has won over 20 national and international awards for innovation and service and were recently shortlisted for UK law firm of the year at The British Legal awards.

We believe in being different and our main differentiating factors are:

Certainty over fees – We scope all matters in detail and provide clients with a fixed, certain cost wherever possible.

Certainty over seniority – We are a partner only model. All partners join us having spent at least 10 years at leading national and international firms or in business.

Certainty over innovation - We are committed to constantly improving the way that we work with clients. We will continue to invest in technology and training to ensure that our offering remains innovative and in-line with the progress of clients’ businesses.

These elements allow us to provide real value for money with brilliant client service at the heart of our offering.

I found Marlene to be extremely thorough and knowledgeable in her area of specialization. Her competence and advice impressed me from the beginning and I always felt she was an advocate for me. I highly recommend working with her.

I have not reached an outcome yet and so I am sure that I will still need Marlene's services for a little longer. I can only say that Marlene's support and advice has been excellent. Marlene talks straight and helps you understand the unfathomable world. That is employment law. Marlene's direction is clear and helpful. I really rate Marlene and would recommend her most highly.
