About Gateley Legal

Gateley stands apart from the crowd because of what we do and who we are. The first commercial law firm to float on the London Stock Exchange, our strategy is to differentiate what we do by diversifying the professional services that we offer our clients and to incentivise our people. It is this strategy that has seen our turnover nearly double since we listed and our team grow to around 1000 people. We are a business that has a great story to tell and an even more exciting one planned.

We work together to deliver 100% client satisfaction by making the complex simple. We achieve this through our core values of being forward thinking and straight talking.

Forward thinking: Since arriving as the new kids on the block all those years ago, we’ve earned our stripes in the legal industry, building a leading name and a revered reputation. It’s why we went Plc. It’s why we’re pushing the limits of what a legal and professional business can offer. Forward thinking within our business helps our clients move forward in theirs.

Straight talking: Business is complicated. The last thing we want to do is add more complexity. Which is why we make sure our advice is always clear, straightforward, and easy to put into practice. Our diverse team is made up of experts in all areas of law and business. But it’s about more than just their expertise. It’s about being straight talking. We deliver all this advice in simple, clear, everyday language, so you spend less time decoding legal jargon and more time focusing on what's important to you.

Since becoming a public company we have added to our national network of offices by opening in Reading and acquiring niche Residential Development firm, GCL Solicitors, in Guildford. We are building a professional services group having acquired five complementary businesses with fiscal incentives consultancy, Gateley Capitus, specialist property consultancy, Gateley Hamer, assessment and talent management specialists, Kiddy & Partners, International Investment Services and land referencing consultancy, Persona Associates. We have also introduced a range of employee share schemes, ensuring all employees can share in the success of our business by acquiring shares in Gateley (Holdings) Plc. In our culture, if the business does well, then our people do too.

To be a Gateley person requires an exceptional kind of individual. I believe our team is beyond compare and that our people are the best in the industry. They share a certain ‘something’ – that something is the Gateley Team Spirit. It binds us together and sets us apart. We are an exciting and rewarding business to work for. For the right candidate, your future and our future are one and the same.
