This is a fantastic achievement for gunnercooke. It’s always been our aim to challenge and improve the way legal services are delivered to businesses and so we are honoured to have won such a prestigious award.
This was the 12th annual Excellence Awards hosted by the Law Society, and the first year they have recognised ‘Law Firm of the Year’ for small, medium and large firms, making us the first firm to be awarded Law Firm of the Year – Large. Following this win, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to reflect on how much we’ve achieved and update you on our progress so far.
We set out in 2010 to become the leading law firm in the World, as measured by our clients. Everyone at gunnercooke has worked hard to achieve this and we are proud to maintain an average Net Promoter Score of +84, against an industry average of +19. It is a testament to the quality of our lawyers and the service they deliver.
In just eight years, we have grown from two people sat in a Costa coffee shop with a dream of developing an innovative law firm model, to a nationwide network of over 170 senior partners delivering expert legal advice. Its awards such as this which help us acknowledge and celebrate what we have achieved so far. But we can’t celebrate this achievement without recognising the impressive shortlist we were up against; Anthony Collins Solicitors, Duncan Lewis Solicitors, Harbottle & Lewis, HFW, JMW Solicitors LLP, Moore Blatch LLP. Pinsent Masons, Shoosmiths and Stone King LLP. It’s fantastic to have been recognised as a leading law firm among such prominent firms within the industry, and a true testament to how far we have come.
So, we’d like to say thank-you to everyone for their continued support and thank-you for helping us grow and develop into becoming the law firm we set out to be. Rest assured we still have a lot to do, but it is our focus to develop and evolve to become the leading law firm in the World. We hope to receive your continued support in the future as we grow from strength to strength.
