Gateley advised Health Assured Ltd (a subsidiary of Peninsula Business Services headed by Peter Done who is also joint founder of BetFred) on the acquisitions of Capita’s employee assistance business and its ill health retirement business. Capita’s employee assistance programme provides access to counselling support and information both to employees and through services provided as part of a wider offering.
