Slaughters mulls senior adviser role in partnership alternative rethink
August 15, 2013 | 12:00 am| | | Start Conversation
Slaughter and May is in the early stages of a review of its career structure for senior lawyers wishing to take an alternative route to partnership.
The magic circle firm has begun a rethink of its senior adviser role, which is broadly aligned with a senior counsel position at other firms.
The title is currently held by two lawyers at the firm – Christopher Wright, who joined from a government role in 1998 and specialises in regulated industries, and competition lawyer Paul Walter, who was handed the title after taking on extra responsibilities when he was a senior associate.
The firm is currently reviewing exactly what the senior adviser role entails and how it fits alongside the firm’s traditional partnership model, and whether there is scope to devise a long-term, non-partnership role for its lawyers.
