With pacey revenue growth over the last five years, gunnercooke looks to be a poster child for operating under the fee-sharing model. Is the firm really cooking with gas or will it struggle to keep market share as economic pressures mount?
Now celebrating its second year in the LB100 main table, having risen five places on last year to 73rd place, gunnercooke is also notable for the fact that its revenue has more than doubled in a five-year timeframe. ‘The firm has been successful,’ notes one managing partner. ‘It appeals to individuals who are attuned to looking out for their own particular interests,’ he notes, referring to the firm’s less traditional fee-sharing model.
