Transaction support & due diligence

Gateley Legal

Due diligence speed is a major contributor to deal success. We have the expertise to recognise issues quickly and suggest practical, proportionate and commercial solutions.

We offer experienced, quality-assured legal due diligence and warranty and indemnity advice on a wide range of corporate, private equity and debt transactions.

What do we do?

We recognise and address any issues which may give rise to delay/ or pose execution risk or those which may impact pricing. Supporting clients with transaction structuring, risk management, price and contract negotiation and post-completion integration, we undertake legal due diligence on acquisitions, as well as conducting vendor-led due diligence and pre-sale reviews/ data room preparation.      

We keep clients fully updated throughout a transaction to enable timely, well-informed decision making. Our clients choose the reporting styles which best suits their requirements: red-flag, executive summary, or comprehensive reporting. Our specialists are available to discuss matters throughout a transaction, with follow up post-completion to assist in business improvement and value enhancement.

We provide:

  • Private equity deal advisory
  • Corporate or trade client advisory
  • Reporting to senior and alternative debt funders
  • Due diligence and integration advice for bolt on acquisitions
  • Vendor due diligence
  • Warranty and indemnity negotiation (for buyers and sellers)
  • Advice on warranty and indemnity insurance.
