It’s game on at Slater&Gordon


Grab the popcorn.

SLATER & Gordon, whose internal 1995 probe resulted in Julia Gillard leaving her job at the law firm, is now trying to gag a former equity partner after he disclosed secrets concealed for the past 17 years.

After speaking out in The Weekend Australian about the circumstances of Ms Gillard’s departure, Nick Styant-Browne received a legal letter yesterday from lawyers for Slater & Gordon and its former partner, Peter Gordon.

Peter Gordon doesn’t seem too happy with a lot of people these days…

LAW firm Slater & Gordon considered sacking Julia Gillard during a 1995 secret internal investigation because her relationship with the firm’s partners had “fractured, and trust and confidence evaporated”, according to then partner Peter Gordon.

The Australian can today reveal that Mr Gordon, a senior lawyer now at a different firm, drafted a remarkable statement last week in which he described torrid fallout after the discovery of Ms Gillard’s controversial legal work for an allegedly corrupt union boss, her then boyfriend Bruce Wilson.

Should be a fun day.

Also, if you haven’t yet, this interview with Michael Smith is a must listen (and it isn’t too long).
