Australia’s first publicly listed law firm has welcomed its inclusion in the S&P/ASX 200 index.
Slater and Gordon’s inclusion in the index was announced to the market on December 6 and becomes effective from today.
Slater and Gordon chief financial officer Wayne Brown said the upgrade comes just three months after the company’s inclusion in the S&P/ASX 300.
“Our inclusion in this index is a reflection of investors’ continued confidence in the growth strategy we have adopted since listing in 2007, including our recent expansion into the UK market,” Mr Brown said.
Last month Slater and Gordon announced the proposed acquisition of another high quality UK firm, Pannone, bringing the firm a step closer to its goal of becoming the UK’s leading consumer law firm.
