Denise Walker

Managing Partner & Head of Corporate


Denise is the founder of Glenville Walker and is Head of the Corporate department.

Denise advises on all aspects of Business Law and as Head of Corporate Department she quite uniquely instigated the development of a Corporate Finance offering within her last firm over 16 years ago. This also encompasses Corporate Finance and Business Enhancement and Restructuring.

Denise has worked very closely with Corporate Finance for many years and as a result has developed a more rounded approach to business advice’s which has enhanced her reputation and has been recognised by her clients as different.

Denise is a natural communicator and has a wide circle of business contacts which she will draw upon in Glenville Walker to create a useful and exciting network of support for Business Clients.

Denise qualified as a Solicitor in 1991 after a prior career in Haematology in Hospital Pathology. Denise spent 27 years working as a Corporate Lawyer in a large Business focused North west regional law firm. She was made Partner 4 years after qualification, was Head of the Corporate Department for 13 years (leading a team of 30 people which has the largest corporate team in Liverpool at that time), a member of the firm’s Management Board for two consecutive terms, developed that firm’s Corporate Finance offering and managed the Department through 4 consecutive mergers.

Denise decided upon a change of direction and founded Glenville Walker with her partners on the 3rd of January 2017.

Denise’s vision is to ensure that Glenville Walker will provide value for money by providing its clients with more user friendly, down to earth, commercially minded and practically useful advices either itself or through its network of experienced Business Consultants.

This approach stands out as different in this world of larger corporate law firms who sadly seem to be losing their business friendly cultures as a function of their size.

What the legal 500 says about Denise.

The Legal 500 2016 says Denise is “first rate” and Denise has been described in Legal 500 as a leading individual for many years.

Denise is also recognised in Chambers.


“When you really need someone to go in and bat for you – Denise Walker is the solicitor I would choose! Her commitment means you know you have a great ally and advocate – and a friend when times are challenging.”
