Our approach to innovation

Throughout its history, Slaughter and May has both supported and practised entrepreneurialism and innovation. We recognise the value innovation can bring to complement our traditional strengths and support our lawyers to deliver the best in class, business focussed advice on which our reputation is built.

For us, innovation means using our creative problem solving skills to identify areas for improvement and find new ways of working which add value for our clients, enhance the working lives of our employees, and put us in the best position to win the types of work we want to win.

Innovation is also an opportunity for us to deliver against our diversity and inclusion, corporate responsibility and sustainability strategies. It may involve new technologies, process improvements, agile resourcing models or a combination of these and it can result in anything from a small, incremental change in process to a fundamental shift in the way a project is managed.
