Unrivalled industry experience and pragmatic advice
We have an outstanding reputation for our expertise in the housebuilding sector. Combining decades of experience with proactive, practical advice enables us to offer a specialist service that you can build your business on.
Gateley Plc acts for all of the top 10 housebuilders – and for 17 out of the 20 biggest housebuilders in the UK – as well as for key land promoters and institutional landowners. So our experience in this sector is second to none.
Our partners in this area have all worked closely with housebuilders for many years, and this shapes the way the whole team works. As a result, we offer very specialist expertise and act on an everyday basis like an in-house team for our clients.
Unlike other large law firms, our experience and knowledge is very practical and we have exceptional, in-depth understanding of the industry. We intuitively appreciate and consider your business needs, the way you work and your language, because we’ve worked so closely with the industry for so many years.
We know that you want to work with a top quality, highly competent team that’s on your doorstep – reliable and responsive experts with local knowledge of local agents and the local market. But with the national footprint and reach that you need, as and when you need it.
The size and breadth of our team means we’re able to offer a one-stop shop service to meet all your needs. We handle all aspects of residential development work – everything from complex strategic site assemblies, joint ventures, planning advice, employment support and group banking facilities to the best form of plot transfer or garage lease.
We have one of the largest plot sales teams in the UK, which delivers an extremely responsive and reputable service using a fully computerised platform that we developed in-house. Our fee earners inherently understand the needs of the sales directors they’re working for.
We also have a team of dispute resolution lawyers, who work exclusively for the housebuilding sector. These experts deal with claims from dissatisfied customers, disputes arising from property agreements, claims against construction professionals and disputes with other suppliers of goods and services to the sector.
