About us

Recognising an opportunity to adopt a business structure that would support and enhance growth, Gateley was  the first commercial law firm in the UK to list on the London Stock Exchange’s growth market, AIM, in 2015. Since listing, we have diversified and differentiated our offering creating four distinct platforms which meet the need of our clients. 

We have completed several acquisitions of legal and professional services businesses which complement our platforms. You can find out more about our acquisition timeline within our Gateley story.

Our purpose

Delivering results that delight our clients, inspire our people and support our communities

Our values

Ambitious for success

Gateley people are ambitious but we are also humble in our approach, quietly confident and never boastful. We stay out of the spotlight, as our focus is always on putting the client (and their needs) front and centre. Clients come first in all our decision making. Our ambitions are big but we take care of the little details. Our ambitions also define who we are, show what we are passionate about and are the foundations of our continued success.

Forward thinking

To work at Gateley is to have a sense of adventure. We aren’t just business people, we are pioneers on a journey to diversify, differentiate and incentivise.

Our people see work as an opportunity to stretch themselves, to explore and reach their potential both personally and professionally. We are forward thinkers, inventive but always commercial.

We are bright and unstuffy, and enjoy challenging convention – not for the fun of it but to deliver the best results possible for our clients and our business.

Room to breathe

At Gateley we embrace people’s ambitions. Variety, stretch and growth sit happily alongside balance, flexibility and choice. We recognise one size never fits all. Gateley people care. We are individuals who relish being part of a diverse and inclusive team and we are personable and friendly to the core. What you see is what you get.

Trusted to do

When we say we will do something we do it; maintaining a clear focus on the doing, not the hurdle. In return we are trusted to get on with things.

Working together

Gateley people want to be part of a team and we work inclusively and collaboratively with everyone we come into contact with. We recognise the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts. We have a purpose, whether that’s providing straight talking legal or business advice, working together with colleagues to deliver the best results for the client or by supporting our business in achieving its vision.

Our Platforms

Our platforms combine the skills and expertise of the lawyers within Gateley Legal with the extensive expertise of other professionals from our consultancy businesses. It is the combined skills and knowledge of these experienced professionals that help our clients to solve the problems that they face, to mitigate risk, to realise growth and to maximise opportunities.

Business Services 

Our Business Services Platform combines the considerable commercial expertise of our regulatory, IP and dispute resolution lawyers with the patent and trade mark attorneys within Adamson Jones and Symbiosis IP and the forensic and business intelligence skills of the Gateley Omega team.

Corporate

Our Corporate Platform combines the skills of corporate,  commercial, banking, finance, tax and restructuring advisory lawyers in Gateley Legal with the inward investment experience of consultants within Gateley Global.

People

Our People Platform brings together the advisory skills of our leadership and development consultancies t-three and Kiddy & Partners with the expertise of our employment, immigration, employee incentives and pensions lawyers within Gateley Legal and the independent pension trustees within Entrust. 

Within this Platform, we also have a strong private client and family team who advise clients in England and internationally on private wealth matters, private wealth disputes, family issues, charity matters including philanthropic giving and tax compliance. 

Property

Within our Property Platform, Gateley Legal lawyers advise on construction, planning, residential development, real estate finance, real estate development, real estate disputes and real estate investment. The property tax specialists within Gateley Capitus combine with the built environment consultants within Gateley Vinden and Gateley Hamer to offer a one-stop-shop for all real estate needs. Our Property Platform is further complemented by Gateley Smithers Purslow,  a specialist provider of surveying services, principally to the insurance industry.

Our locations

With offices across the UK and another in Dubai, we have the regional network to provide our clients with the advice they need on their doorstep. Balancing sustainability and accessibility, we use a combination of in-person and Teams meetings to support our clients and to get the job done.
