The board of embattled law firm Slater & Gordon will resign in the wake of a debt-for-equity deal with a group of international institutional investors. US hedge fund Anchorage Capital will emerge as the major shareholder in the listed law firm, while investment banks and distressed debt funds will also convert their debt into equity. Slater & Gordon’s veteran MD Andrew Grech will stay at the firm as a non-executive director until a successor is appointed. The firm incurred large losses following its expansion into the UK market.
