We also believe in taking a

responsible approach to our business

and making a positive social and

environmental impact.

This generosity of spirit is furthered

by how we allow great minds the

space to grow. Brilliant minds should

not be restricted. We strive to find

remarkable people and give them

the freedom to think and innovate.

Why? Because with the kind of

work we do - often groundbreaking

international transactions - it is

the ability to navigate our clients

out of a tight corner that sets us

apart from everyone else. For those

clients, this difference makes a

world of difference.

We hope this brochure inspires

your choice.

A world of difference

An introduction from Cathy and David

We are proud that many regard

Slaughter and May to be one of

the most prestigious law firms in

the world and that governments,

multinational corporations and

financial institutions trust us with

their most sensitive and critical

business. But perhaps of greater

relevance to you, as you consider

your future, is why they should do so.

There are many approaches to law

and many firms have outstanding

reputations. When you are looking

for the place where you will fit

best and are most likely to thrive,

our advice is to look behind the

reputation and try to understand the

culture that creates it.

We believe in independent thought.

Autonomy, both individual and

collective, gives rise to more original,

more powerful thinking. We have

our own take on how things should

be done and we operate differently

from other global law firms in five

distinct ways, which we explain on

page three.

Our people come from diverse

backgrounds. There is no 'type'

here - Slaughter and May is an

extraordinary mix of opinions,

interests, personalities and

nationalities. This is a great asset,

but our true strength lies in how this

individuality comes together.

We believe that the way our firm is

structured helps us to support,

share and collaborate better.
