We advise on how to maximise opportunities within a business, identifying the best ways to avoid or mitigate risk in growth and change projects. When disputes arise, we advise on how to respond to that risk, recover from it in the best possible way and how to implement solutions to mitigate future risk factors arising.
We advise businesses at every stage of their corporate lifecycle from start-up to exit, dealing with all aspects of growing a business managing the financial and governance responsibilities along the way.
With a team of people development consultants, pensions advisers and lawyers, we help employers fix the people issues that arise within organisations in everyday operations and change projects. We enable businesses to become fitter for the future, flexing the implemented solutions in response to changing economic and social contexts.
Our team of surveyors, property tax consultants and lawyers work with property investors, owners, occupiers and developers at every stage of the property lifecycle, from opportunity identification through to the use and commercialisation of property assets.
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 needs of our clients.
Our purpose is to deliver results that delight our clients, inspire our people and support our communities. We do this by:
Our Gateley Team Spirit underpins everything we do. It draws us together and influences the people who join us, the clients we act for, the acquisitions we make and the interaction we have with our communities.
Our Gateley Team Spirit elements are ambitious for success; forward thinking; room to breathe; working together; trusted to do.
As a listed business, delivering results is a must. However, for Gateley, delivering results is not just about delivering financial results.
As a signatory to the Better Business Act, we believe that we can be a force for good, benefitting our people, clients, communities and the environment while also delivering profit. By balancing these needs, we will be an employer of choice, an attractive investment opportunity, an organisation that clients are proud to collaborate with and a responsible business.
Forward thinking, straight talking, we provide a stimulating and rewarding environment for people who are looking for a new challenge.
Our people thrive on being pro-active, bringing energy and implementing ideas. We work hard and enjoy what we do.
While our business is predominantly legal services through Gateley Legal, as part of our growth strategy we have expanded through acquisition into complementary business services.
Our business model creates a platform for scalable and sustainable growth.
