Chief Executive

As George Green’s Chief Executive David’s focus is on clients and people, making a difference by helping the firm’s clients succeed and its people be the best that they can be. He therefore spends time listening to clients to find out what they want and then, vitally, ensuring that this is delivered by attracting and developing the right people. David measures success by the provision of superb client service and a great place to work, neither of which come about by accident.

More recently he sat on the Main Board at Shakespeares where he was Head of the firm's Commercial Services Group.

Consistently ranked in both Legal 500 and Chambers directories, David’s reputation is founded on a passion for getting his clients to where they want to get to and his ability to motivate and energise those around him to do the same. He has been lauded widely for his hands on pragmatic support for his clients and in this respect client feedback includes “proper commercial advice delivered in real time; can’t ask for more than that!”; “we are really glad we had David gunning for us” ; “excellent support throughout the whole process; your approach has been commented on by everyone.;and "streetwise and sensitive to client needs"
