Claire Jackson   – Slaughter and May

Leveraging the firm’s position in the market as a transactional powerhouse, Slaughter and May’s corporate practitioners are regularly involved in high-profile corporate and financing transactions at a national and international level. In a recent highlight, the group advised GlaxoSmithKline on the demerger of its consumer healthcare business into a separately listed group.
