Gateley Plc handles a mix of work, with a particularly strong roster of work for housebuilders.

In addition, Tim Ledger is acting for Keepmoat Homes on an £80m development on the banks of the River Soar in Leicester. Pamela Scott advises a consortium of two housebuilders and a social housing provider on the purchase of sites as part of the Hull Citywide Framework. Robert Thompson is also a name of note for major house-building developments, while Ray Simpson advised Regal on financing its plan to construct Birmingham’s tallest residential tower. Away from housebuilding, Pettifor advises Mountpark Logistics on a speculative commercial development in Warrington, and Soulplane on developing a logistics property near Manchester Airport.
