Our location in London

The Slater and Gordon offices in London are located on Chancery Lane, an iconic and historic street known for its centuries-old association with the legal profession. The lane takes its name from the High Court of Chancery, a court of equity for England and Wales that developed in the 15th century and which was notable for not being bound by the strict rules of common law at the time. The court was dissolved in 1873 when the common and equity courts were unified into the High Court of Justice.

Throughout history, Chancery Lane has enjoyed a reputation as being the unofficial national headquarters of the UK’s legal industry. The High Court of Chancery used to convene in Lincoln Inn’s Old Hall and the lane was also home to the estate for the Master of the Rolls, where court records were stored and later, where the Public Record Office was established. Nowadays, a visitor to the street will see evidence of Chancery Lane’s legal past at virtually every turn, as well as other architectural and historical landmarks such as the Grade II listed building housing the Maughan Library and the London Silver Vaults. Chancery Lane is a popular tourist destination, attracting thousands of visitors a year, all eager to absorb the history and atmosphere at this iconic London lane.

Just minutes from the Slater and Gordon offices is the Hall of The Law Society of England and Wales, the professional association that governs the legal profession in this country. Formed in 1825 and acquiring its first Royal Charter in 1831, the Law Society now provides services and support to its members – practising solicitors and those in training to join the legal profession. The organisation is independent and its regulatory powers are underpinned by statute which includes the Solicitors Act 1974, the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990 and the Access to Justice Act 1999.

Slater and Gordon Lawyers is proud to be located so near to such a prestigious, historic and internationally respected organisation as the Law Society, and to be one of its members.

Other important legal landmarks in London include the Royal Courts of Justice, one of the largest courts in Europe and home to both the High Court and the Court of Appeal. These are two of the most Senior Courts of England and Wales. Situated just minutes from our London solicitor’s headquarters on Chancery Lane, the Royal Courts of Justice are a magnificent example of Victorian Gothic architecture and as parts of the building are open to the public, attract many thousands of visitors a year. Built in the 1870s and opened by Queen Victoria herself, the Law Courts (as they are commonly known) are famous for the impressive features such as the opulent Great Hall and the elaborately carved walls and ceilings of the Lord Chief Justice’s court. It is in these courts that some of the most important, high-profile legal cases in the country are heard and decided.

The capital’s other famous courts and legal buildings include Inner London Crown Court, the Old Bailey (the Central Criminal Court of England and Wales), Blackfriars Crown Court, Thames Magistrates Court, the Rolls Building and Westminster Magistrates Court.

London is also a world leader when it comes to legal education and research. The Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London is one of the oldest institutions of its kind in England and is widely believed to be one of the best law schools in the world. The law schools at Queen Mary University of London and University College London are consistently ranked within the top establishments to study law both in the UK and internationally.
