Gardner Leader - Member Story

Excellence and achievement defines a LawNet firm

The LawNet Law Firm of the Year award sets a challenging standard, one that reflects the LawNet ethos of quality and achievement against strategically-aligned goals. Gardner Leader secured the accolade in 2016 after consistently exceeding targets in their ambitious development strategy, which saw the firm’s turnover double in five years, through a combination of organic growth, strategic alliances and acquisition.

Their strategy was based on three key themes, all of which resonate with the LawNet philosophy and are supported through the network’s range of infrastructure services, enabling Gardner Leader to draw on relevant, purposed support during its fast-moving development:

• fostering a culture of excellent client service;
• creating sustainable long-term relationships; and
• investing in their people.

The firm has been a member of LawNet since 1993 and managing partner Derek Rodgers has served on the LawNet board since 2016.
