I am very proud that my colleague Michael Shapiro has been made an equity partner in the Firm. Michael’s route to partnership has not been the conventional one, joining the firm as an office junior back in 1988, with just his O-Level’s and a year’s business administration course behind him.

Undertaking all his training whilst at the firm, Michael qualified as a legal executive in 1997 and his hard work and determination has seen him continue to progress through the firm to Head of Litigation, and eventually Partner.

Michael has always brought something different and unique to the firm. He is testament to the fact that the same approach doesn’t always work for everybody in every situation, a culture and philosophy he continues to apply to his clients on a day to day basis. Many congratulations Michael, Mazeltov.

GSC Solicitors LLP has appointed Michael Shapiro as an Equity Partner after three years as a partner and 12 years as a Head of Commercial Litigation.
