The AllAboutLaw perspective on Gateley Legal

A career at Gateley Legal provides you with the opportunity to work somewhere where you feel valued and supported. Past trainees have praised the fact that the firm’s partners are willing to sit down and talk to you, and the dedicated support and mentoring you receive from senior solicitors. As a trainee, you’ll attend soft-skills, IT and technical training, allowing you to blossom as a lawyer.

Gately offers two routes to qualification: its traditional training contract and a Graduate Solicitor Apprenticeship. Trainees complete seats in the core legal areas of corporate, real estate, and contentious, with options such as construction, pensions, and dispute resolution. They also get the opportunity to complete a client secondment with one of the firm’s key clients.

Gateley Legal is keen to give back to its community and works closely with numerous charities. It sponsors different charity partners every 12 months. Past sponsorships include The BuddyBag Foundation, where firm employees packed Christmas gift boxes that were donated to children in emergency care. 

The firm is also keen to ensure that everyone feels included and supported, regardless of their background. Gateley Legal is a disability-confident employer and has a number of diversity networks in place. Their Pride network group creates a welcoming, supportive space for staff to share experiences, ideas or concerns about sexual orientation or gender identity. Celebrating LGBTQ+ History Month and taking part in Pride Parades, the firm ensures an inclusive working environment.
