THE FIRM Slaughter and May is a leading international law firm with a worldwide corporate, commercial and financing practice. The firm provides incisive advice while ensuring real value for money, and a professional service of the highest calibre. Slaughter and May is recognised throughout the business and legal community for its ability to help its clients realise and develop commercial opportunities, no matter how challenging the setting.

The firm prides itself on being different. A client-focused approach means that clients are central to its culture; and a multi-disciplinary philosophy ensures that lawyers have a broad understanding of many legal areas and can offer not only depth of expertise but also breadth of experience and sound commercial judgement.

The firm’s clients range from governments to entrepreneurs, from funds to leading banks, from retailers to entertainment companies and from industrial conglomerates to Premier League football clubs. It is trusted adviser to the largest UK and global public companies and acts for more FTSE companies than any other law firm, by some margin.

GLOBAL CHALLENGE World-Class response. Slaughter and May has an extensive international practice, assisting clients on business-critical, cross-border matters, providing legal advice that genuinely reflects what ‘global’ means for its clients. The firm sets itself apart from the market as it is not constrained by formal alliances or having to cross-sell fixed networks. Clients benefit from working with the best person for the job – no matter where in the world. The firm has developed extensive and meaningful relationships with like-minded experts in their own jurisdictions who have a depth of understanding that cannot be replicated, but can be shared.

Offices in London, Brussels, Hong Kong and Beijing, combined with its relationships with market-leading firms around the world allows Slaughter and May to deliver a world-class response to its clients’ challenges.
