Part of Gateley, a legal and professional services group

In March 2020, The Vinden Partnership joined Gateley, a legal and professional services group, and formed Gateley Vinden. Gateley was the UK’s first commercial law firm to list on the London Stock Exchange. With access to 1000 colleagues across 11 UK locations, the group provides its clients with legal and consulting advice beyond that of a traditional law firm. So often, challenges that clients need to resolve can be dealt with more quickly and cost effectively by engaging with different professionals; with access to the lawyers in Gateley Legal, the CPO, utilities and infrastructure experts within Gateley Hamer, the fiscal incentives consultants within Gateley Hamer, the inward investment experts at International Investment Services, and the business psychologists within Kiddy & Partners and t-three, the group can offer clients a ‘one-stop-shop’ of advice which gets the problem resolved. Advice which we like to describe as Forward thinking, Straight talking.
