Samantha Mangwana is a Principal Lawyer (partner) at Slater & Gordon Lawyers’ employment department. Her practice encompasses all aspects of Employment Law, including discrimination, unfair dismissal and contractual claims. She has particular experience in City discrimination cases, having acted on behalf of claimants in high-profile sex, race and religious discrimination claims against financial institutions, including maternity discrimination and return to work issues. Among Samantha’s cases that have attracted widespread media coverage was Fariad & Fariad v Tradition Securities & Futures – Muslim twin sisters claiming racial and religious discrimination, as well as sexual harassment - and Tofeji v BNP Paribas - a City trader who claimed a sexist work culture forced her to quit her job after she returned from maternity leave. Samantha was previously in the Employment Department at the London office of Russell Jones & Walker (RJW).

Samantha was The Lawyer magazine’s runner-up Assistant Solicitor of the Year in 2009 and was named in Management Today’s 35 under 35 list, which features “high-flying” business women, in the same year. In 2008 she was listed as one of the Financial News' 100 Rising Stars for that year.
