Meet Gavin Cummings

Position in 1992

Articled clerk (trainee solicitor)

Position now

Partner and head of the firm's business services department

Secrets of success

I was lucky to join an ambitious firm which has developed and grown rapidly during my time here. We do not have a hierarchical approach and I have therefore felt that my views have always been welcome and I have been given the support and encouragement to build the firm’s business. It is particularly rewarding to have a direct influence on the strategic direction of the firm.

I would put my success down to building strong relationships and taking a commercial approach to issues. It is key to understand your client’s business and their strategic objectives before you can hope to give good advice. I encourage our teams not to be frightened to give an opinion and to always put the legal implications into context.


I am head of our business services department and a member of the firm’s strategy board. I specialise in corporate finance, joint ventures, corporate governance and restructurings.
