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.

Good grief, he looks like shaved Dobby.

"Dobby apologises to master for questioning Slaughter and May's pure lockstep system. Dobby will iron his tongue."
