Leeds-based gunnercooke moves to Avenue HQ

Law firm gunnercooke has moved to the Avenue HQ building in the heart of Leeds city centre.

The Leeds team at gunnercooke has expanded rapidly, from three partners in 2016 to a current partner headcount of 30, covering corporate, commercial, dispute resolution, employment, IP/IT, banking and finance, healthcare, commercial real estate and sport.

Avenue HQ Leeds is located on East Parade. Situated over five floors, the building contains more than 200 work spaces, and private offices of various sizes.

Earlier this year, Barclays Eagle Labs became a major new partner at Avenue HQ Leeds. As well as offering help and support to all members, Barclays Eagle Labs also has its own floor dedicated to incubating high-growth businesses.

Sarah Goulbourne, co-founder of gunnercooke, commented: “Our Leeds office is thriving. We are growing at speed and increasingly we are attracting highly skilled, ambitious practitioners to our firm, who have the appetite to build outstanding practices, and I’m excited at the momentum that this is creating in our business plan.”

Clients of gunnercooke include Jet2.com, Barclays, RBS, Santander, B + M, Yodel, JD Sports, PetsAtHome and Which, as well as smaller companies across the region and across the country, including startups and spin-outs from universities. 

The firm also has offices in London and Manchester.
