Slaughter and May is a UK powerhouse that regularly leads high-value, cross-border transactions from its base in London. The law firm utilises its network of partnerships with leading firms in other major jurisdictions to win roles in important M&A transactions, including high-profile mergers between industrial companies operating in multiple jurisdictions in Europe. The law firm frequently acts for investment banks and private equity sponsors, and often acts for FTSE 100 companies in the technology sector.
One source says: "Slaughter and May are super high quality and extremely good to work with."
Andy Ryde and Roland Turnill head the firm's corporate and M&A practices respectively and are based in London.
