British firm back in London office after pandemic

British law firm Slater and Gordon says that its reopening of a London office is a sign of its strength and confidence.

According to the Law Society Gazette of England and Wales, staff moved into the new space in Chancery Lane this week, around two years after the firm had opted to close its nearby office when the lease on its previous building had ended.

That decision was taken at the height of the pandemic, but the Gazette says that there is a sense now that workers want a hybrid arrangement, allowing them to operate remotely as well as have an office in the capital.

Slater and Gordon’s new London office offers a mix of traditional desks, private meeting-rooms and open-plan collaboration spaces.

Range of working options

More than 170 staff will be based at the new London office, equipped with a workplace scheduling tool and visitor-management system to ensure integration with home working.

It will be a base for the firm’s personal-injury, employment and family teams based in the south-east of England.

Nils Stoesser, Slater and Gordon chief executive, said: “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 has a network of offices based in other major British city.
