Gateley’s specialist teams cover all aspects of legal services and in 2015, they were the UK’s first commercial law firm to become a publicly-quoted company admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange. The bold move to go public embodies the firm’s pioneering ethos. Their strategy is to differentiate themselves in a crowded market, incentivise their people to retain and attract the best talent in the industry and diversify by acquiring complementary business services.
The group has expanded rapidly over the last few years, most recently with the acquisition of land and property law firm GCL solicitors, which now sits in Gateley Plc’s Residential Development team.
Other business services within the Gateley group include: Gateley Capitus, a leading fiscal incentives consultancy; Gateley Hamer, a specialist property consultancy; and Entrust Pension, a leading professional independent trustee company.
