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.

Why join us?

Forward thinking, straight talking, we provide a stimulating and rewarding environment for people who are looking for a new challenge. Our people thrive on being pro-active, bringing energy and implementing ideas. We work hard and enjoy what we do. Our culture, our Gateley Team Spirit, underpins everything that we do:

  • we work together, collaborating to bring out the best in each other;
  • we are forward thinkers, motivated by change and doing things differently;
  • we have room to breathe, supported to bring the best of ourselves to work;
  • we are trusted to do, encouraged to use our professional experience to deliver a great service to our internal and external clients; and
  • we are ambitious for success, quietly confident and never boastful.

We recognise the importance of creating a rewarding place to work. As a Plc we are uniquely positioned to offer equity participation for all individuals. You can become a Gateley shareholder and share in the success of the business. Over 57% of our colleagues have done just that through one of the three share schemes which are available to all employees across the group.
