Gateley expands its Leeds city centre base

Gateley has expanded within Evans Property Group’s Minerva office building in central Leeds by signing a ten year lease on the whole 5,000 sq ft 7th floor, taking its total space within the building to 12,500 sq ft.

Gateley entered the Yorkshire market in 2012 and has grown from six to 42 members of staff in Leeds, providing clients with expertise across corporate, corporate recovery, real estate, residential development, regulatory and commercial dispute resolution.

William Ballmann, corporate recovery partner and head of Gateley’s Leeds office, said: “The decision to increase our space in Minerva was an easy one. Our continued growth, particularly in our RDU team, means we needed greater space available to us. The location of Minerva means we are at the heart of the Leeds business community and easily accessible, which was an important factor given that many of our key clients are Leeds city centre based”.

Alan Syers, portfolio director at Evans Property Group, said: “Minerva was created to appeal to organisations with an appreciation for the highest quality working environment in the heart of Leeds City Centre. Our decision to focus on the finishes has proven to be successful in attracting and retaining high-profile occupiers and we are delighted that Gateley is experiencing such success at Minerva and that we were able to accommodate their continued growth.”
