With Gateley, you not only get the breadth and rigour of our specialist legal service, but the opportunity also to access a unique quality of consultancy focussed on public services and public sector issues.
Our Consultancy team have all held chief executive or chief officer positions in local authorities, government departments and non departmental public bodies.
Whether you are a council chief executive who could use some strategic and tactical advice on steering through the council’s obligations in a tight public expenditure climate or a private company who needs help in the increasingly complex task of bidding for public sector frameworks and contracts or a public body grappling with a TUPE transfer to a housing association, another public body, or to a private sector partner, we can help.
We can also offer specialist assistance in elections law and practice, capacity and discipline cases involving senior staff, standards committee advice and investigations, and relationship management between councils and housing associations.
We also have expertise in project management with experience of the local authority, development, joint-venture and mixed use spheres. So you can be sure we can deliver on much more than just pure legal advice.
