Slater and Gordon, a leading consumer legal service, is expected to open a new office in London today.
This new site sits in the heart of London’s legal district in Chancery Lane, providing a base for their teams located in and around the capital. It will offer a dynamic working setting for all Slater and Gordon employees by providing a combination of home-based and office-based working.
This is a major milestone for the company, after launching its Connected Working policy during the pandemic to allow teams to work flexibly. This new office is adopting an almost completely digital approach by providing a mix of traditional desks, open plan collaboration spaces and private meeting rooms for the 170 staff that will be based there.
“The opening of our new London office marks both a new phase in the company’s journey but also a return to our roots in the legal district of London. We look forward to welcoming clients and partners to visit us there. We’re also pleased to be able to better serve our clients based in North East from our new Newcastle office.”
Nils Stoesser, Slater and Gordon Chief Executive Officer added: “Our staff have continued to deliver great results while working remotely during the worst of the pandemic, and we will continue to offer a range of options for our people and clients, whilst returning to work more regularly from our office footprint.”
Slater and Gordon have also recently opened premises on Newcastle’s Quayside, home to Clinical Negligence Lawyers John Lowther and Georgie Redshaw, Serious Injury Lawyers John Davis and Kate Nicklin, and also Employment Senior Associates Sally Fletcher and Gill Reid.
These premises are part of a network of Slater and Gordon offices based in major UK cities including; Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Cambridge.
Stoesser said: “We have made significant investments in technology over the course of the past two years to ensure that Connected Working – our hybrid working approach – works seamlessly for all. These new offices will showcase this ongoing investment.”
