Corporate Service


Highly active and practical advisers, with mergers & acquisitions, corporate finance, private equity and equity capital markets expertise

Unrivalled in the volume of transactions we handle, Gateley Plc is ranked as the most active adviser nationally when it comes to Corporate work.

Our Corporate team is one of the largest national teams in the UK and consistently advises on more transactions than other advisors in the market. We won the 2015 Insider Dealmaker Corporate Law Firm of the Year Award, and pride ourselves on the quality, breadth and cost-effectiveness of our work in this area.

With a client-centric ethos, long-term team stability and the significant experience of our deal leaders, we’re known and valued for our dynamism, entrepreneurial spirit and practical approach. The structure of our highly accomplished team enables us to offer partner involvement as standard on every transaction. Day in, day out, we act as trusted advisers for clients in sectors as diverse as manufacturing and retail, recruitment and education.

Respected by intermediaries and clients across the UK, much of our work is referral-driven. We also regularly act for international buyers of UK legal services. The majority of our lawyers have experience of acting for international corporates, particularly with US-based clients. As a result, we’re frequently appointed to act for corporates or institutions making acquisitions or investments in the UK.

Mergers & Acquisitions is our core competence. But each team member also has experience in a niche corporate legal capability or sector – so we’re all ‘M&A-plus’ specialists. As a result, we really understand the markets we operate in and can offer clear, expert, commercially focused advice on every aspect of private equity, equity capital markets, funds, restructuring, due diligence, company secretarial work and any other corporate transaction. All delivered via the pragmatic, proactive and inherently responsive service on which our reputation is built.
