Leading Law Firm Commits to Cardiff With New Office Move


Leading law firm, Slater and Gordon, is moving to new premises in the centre of Cardiff.

The firm, which is currently based at Ivor House, Churchill Way and Landore Court, Charles Street due to previous acquisitions by the firm, will relocate to purpose-built offices at Haywood House, Dumfries Place, later this month.

It brings together more than 175 staff specialising in personal injury, including clinical negligence, accidents at work and industrial disease. As well as teams dedicated to personal legal services, including employment issues, business legal services and wills, trusts, tax and probate law.

As well as bringing colleagues together under one roof, the new location is very close to Queen Street railway station, making it easy to find for visiting clients. The new offices will also provide an ideal space for networking and community events for clients.

Siri Siriwardene, Head of General Law, said:

“Our aim has always been to provide first class legal advice and support to our clients. To be able to do that in new modern surroundings will make it easier for us and much more attractive and accessible for them.

“While the location may be changing, we retain the same talented and experienced team delivering the excellent service that our clients have come to expect.

“Many of our lawyers have been with us for years and this shows our commitment to continue our growth and expand our resources in order to serve people in the city we all call home.”

The business combined years of experience and expertise when Slater and Gordon acquired Leo Abse and Cohen and Walker Smith Way in 2015.

Senior figures in the team include Mike Jenkins, who will take over the reins as president of Wales TUC in May.

Slater and Gordon has also been shortlisted for ‘Legal and Financial Firm of the Year’ in the Cardiff Life awards, which take place at City Hall next month.
