Slaughter and May has a reputation for providing exceptional legal service, which is recognised and valued by our clients. But there is more to us than this. We are an outward looking, internationally minded collective of individuals who possess significant resources, knowledge and influence to create a substantial and positive impact.

We believe that being a responsible business means that we make decisions with a long term view.

Taking a sustainable approach to our business means that as well as adding value for our clients, we have a positive social and environmental impact. As part of this we are continually investing in our local community, preserving our environment, ensuring that our working culture is diverse and inclusive and that our employment opportunities are open and accessible to all based on individual qualities and personal merit. We involve all of our people to take personal responsibility to make this happen.

We have made a number of commitments to globally recognised initiatives such the UN’s Global Compact, the Sustainable Development Goals, RE100 and Science Based Targets, and we use these as a framework for our strategy.

Our aim is to integrate sustainability into the strategic and operational decisions made at the firm so that it becomes part of our everyday business interactions.
