Slaughter and May has appointed its first ever lateral partner in London
An email has gone round the firm this morning informing staff that the Magic Circle firm has appointed Daniel Shaffer to its Pension & Employment Group. Shaffer leaves his role as Head of Pensions at Herbert Smith Freehills.
It marks a huge departure from Slaughters' standard operating procedure. It only made its first ever lateral partner hire three years ago, in Hong Kong.
