The long read: The numbers game at Slaughter and May
Slaughter and May is an anomaly. It has shunned international growth and become utterly distinct from other firms in its price range. But will this strategy work forever? It’s up to new boss Steve Cooke to decide whether tradition or transformation is the way forward.
Former Slaughter and May partner Miranda Leung retired in November 2016 after 26 years at the firm, 16 of them as a partner. Still only 50, these days her life is very different from what it was while at Slaughters.
