Our Group

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 Platforms

We have structured the business around four platforms which recognise the challenges and opportunities that are clients are facing in respect of:

  • Business Services matters
  • Corporate activities
  • People issues
  • Property matters

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.
