Slaughter and May is a leading international law firm recognised throughout the business community for its commercial awareness and commitment to its clients. In essence, the firm is about quality, market wisdom and good judgement, a constant found throughout its 126 year history.

Our culture allows us to have an unfailing focus on the importance of client relationships – clients who in their most challenging moments value advice delivered with personality. Each of our lawyers is a multi-specialist rather than a technician, equipped to turn their hand to a broad range of legal matters. This enables us to offer not only depth of expertise but also breadth of experience and sound commercial judgement. We often produce the unexpected on the most complex of matters in order to deliver success for our clients.

Our Tax practice is acknowledged to be one of the best in the UK, with top-tier listings in the directories and individual partners identified as leaders in their field.  We provide cutting edge advice on the biggest and most complicated mergers, acquisitions, spins and corporate restructurings and help develop innovative structures for the full range of financing transactions.  We regularly take the lead role on the tax implications of multi-jurisdictional transactions.

A significant proportion of our work is tax consultancy, where we advise clients on the full range of tax issues they face, including transfer pricing.  We also have a well-established Tax Disputes practice and have regularly and successfully represented clients through settlement negotiations and before the Tax Tribunals and the Courts.
