About Laura

Tell us a bit about what you do?

My passion is for advocacy. My practice areas are general civil and commercial litigation. I love resolving disputes and getting great results for my clients, whether it be by negotiated settlement or final judgment at trial. 

I have a good knowledge of Financial Services sector and have expertise in Consumer Credit and Insolvency matters.

What do your clients love about you?

I run my own business so they know that I have a real understanding of what they are doing – I can truly relate to them. Also I’m not constrained by the traditional law firm model so I can work with my clients in the way they need me to.  I love that I have the freedom to build a proper relationship with them – and they love that too. 

Also I have experience of being the client having worked as an in-house lawyer – it’s always great to have experienced the other side of the coin – I know exactly what clients need from their lawyer.

What does success mean to you?

That’s easy – happiness.  From a work perspective that means being part of something where people look out for one another, where it’s supportive and where you are allowed to be yourself. That's why Carbon is the perfect fit for me and my clients.

What do you love?

Holidays, exploring new places and learning about different cultures. Rollercoasters - I love the adrenaline rush and so visit a theme park every year to celebrate my birthday with family and friends. Yoga, baking, Formula 1 and although it’s a while since I’ve been in the saddle myself, I do love a trip to The Badminton Horse Trials.
