What the team is known for

A firm pre-eminent in the UK, known for its handling of the most high-value cross-border M&A transactions, joint ventures and strategic partnerships. The firm offers:
• Europe-wide transactional support from its London and Brussels offices, as well as the cooperation of top independent law firms as part of its non-exclusive network.
• Excellent expertise on deals across Asia, cooperating with its two China offices and leading Asian firms.
• Notable experience on matters in the Middle East, Africa and India.
• An impressive roster of leading corporate entities in the oil and gas, pharmaceutical and TMT sectors, as well as private equity clients.


Another client praises the firm for being "commercial, very practical" and for "knowing what clients want," adding that the lawyers are "clear in what the legal implications are and have experience working across jurisdictions."

A client enthuses: "They have a very extensive network of local counsel relationships in other jurisdictions – they don’t aim to cover everywhere with second-rate lawyers; they have a small footprint of offices themselves and then collaborate with the best firms in other jurisdictions. Slaughter and May work very well with these other counsel that we bring in at the other end of transactions."

Notable practitioners

Andy Ryde and Roland Turnill are key M&A contacts.
