Legal and professional services group snaps up chartered surveyor

Gateley Vinden has snapped up Manchester- and London-based chartered surveyor Tozer Gallagher in a deal worth £700,000.

The Tozer Gallagher team, headed by directors Bill Ibram, Anthony Meaden and Paul Rigby, are well known to Gateley Vinden and Gateley Legal, having previously collaborated on a number of projects.

All three directors will continue to work as part of the management team of Gateley Vinden incorporating Tozer Gallagher.

Tozer Gallagher’s clients include QBE, Euler Hermes, Aviva Insurance and Bank ABC, as well as a number of councils, education trusts and social housing providers across the UK.

In the year ending 31 May 2021, Tozer Gallagher turned over around £1m.

Gateley Vinden says the deal will help widen the scope of its existing built environment consultancy and fund monitoring services.

Rod Waldie, chief executive of Gateley, said: “I am delighted to welcome Tozer Gallagher to the Group.

“The Tozer Gallagher team has worked with many of our colleagues in Gateley Legal and Gateley Vinden and we know there are many opportunities to collaborate further.

“We also have a shared interest in surety work and regularly work with the same clients, so this is an area where we see further growth potential.”
