Australia’s first publicly-listed law firm has welcomed its inclusion in the S&P/ASX 300 index.
Slater and Gordon was today notified that it had been named on the index, recognising the firm’s status among the country’s 300 biggest companies based on criteria including market capitalisation and share turnover.
Slater and Gordon chief financial officer Wayne Brown said the inclusion followed strong results for the 2013 financial year, which saw the firm deliver significant earnings and revenue growth.
“Our inclusion on this index is a reflection of investors’ confidence in the growth strategy we have adopted,” Mr Brown said.
"Since listing in 2007, the firm has executed a clear growth strategy and we intend to continue on this trajectory as a means to continue delivering solid returns to investors while increasing our capacity to service our clients across the full spectrum of legal services."
