Slaughter and May is a leading international law firm, recognised throughout the business community for its exceptional legal service, commercial awareness and commitment to clients. We advise on high-profile, ground-breaking and complex transactions, contentious matters and support our clients across all aspects of risk. We act for more FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies than any other law firm. We have also received a number of awards both for our legal work and for our contribution to the world around us, including our commitment to diversity.
We cover every type of transaction: from corporate law, M&A, competition, subsidy control and financing, to disputes and public law. We specialise in assisting clients in first-of-a-kind projects such as low carbon hydrogen, carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) and greenhouse gas removal technologies. We act for entities involved at every stage of these emerging value chains including generators, utilities, energy traders, network operators, gas storage operators, oil and gas companies, governments, regulators, industrial emitters and transport sector clients. We are experienced in delivering ground-breaking projects in the context of nascent markets and are actively working on mandates in relation to low carbon hydrogen and CCUS, both in the UK and internationally, including in relation to new regulatory frameworks.
