Gateley Plc is a pioneering entrepreneurial professional services group at the heart of which is Gateley Legal, an English law firm established in 1808. In 2015 we became the first commercial law firm in the world to be publicly listed on the London Stock Exchange. We are a top 50 UK ranking law firm with 10 offices throughout the UK and Dubai and over 1,100 employees.

Gateley has specialised departments in many areas of law, including cross-border dispute resolution and ADR, M&A, real estate, international taxation, international family law, shipping, construction, brand reputation (including defamation) and immigration. We also have a dedicated forensics and corporate intelligence team. We recognise that clients are looking to work with advisers who ‘get’ how they like to do business, the challenges they may be facing commercially or personally (which may include disputes), as well as other legal issues arising across different jurisdictions and time zones, including Ukraine.

We have recruited market leaders who provide the expertise our clients need in a considered and discreet manner. We are forward thinking and straight-talking advisers.

The challenges that our clients face are multi-dimensional. By combining the skills of lawyers, forensic specialists, tax consultants, corporate and cyber intelligence professionals, as well as other specialist teams from across the Gateley group, we are able to think ’outside of the box’ and provide more than just legal advice.

We represent several Ukrainian clients in large-scale cross-border disputes and other matters. We understand the culture of Ukraine and have a number of Ukrainian and Russian speaking lawyers within the team. Our colleagues often travel to Kyiv and Lviv and speak at various Ukraine-related events. Our team works closely with Ukrainian counsel and we have strong connections with several leading Ukrainian law firms.
