What the team is known for

Slaughter and May is an elite UK law firm which is revered for its ability to orchestrate global mandates from London and has carved out a high level of influence worldwide. In addition to its London headquarters, the firm operates from office locations in Brussels, Beijing and Hong Kong. Slaughter and May's independent, lockstep model has also proved appealing when forging close relationships with firms of a similar style and status in jurisdictions outside the UK.

The law firm is renowned for acting for high-end corporate clients on a mixture of contractual, shareholder and financial disputes. It is noted for its ability to coordinate complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes from the UK in conjunction with an impressive network of foreign counsel. The firm also ensures that it can act for clients as a unified team with high-quality independent firms worldwide by regularly hosting seconded lawyers from those firms from other jurisdictions, adding to its pool of foreign law expertise.

Strengths

A client comments: "We would use them again and again on appropriate litigation style matters that were cross-border in nature and very important to us. Their support has been tremendous and the way in which they go about guiding, and, where necessary, getting advice from other jurisdictions or internal practices, has been really good. They also have a really strong team of associates who can help as and when was required. They have been tremendous."
