Laura joined St John’s Buildings as a tenant in October 2020 following successful completion of her pupillage under the supervision of David Flood.
She is a civil practitioner, with focus on employment law, and as such welcomes instructions for all civil, employment and education law matters. Laura prides herself on building strong relationships with both her professional and lay clients and has keen attention to detail.
Laura acts in matters in the Employment Tribunal, First-tier Tribunal (Special Educational Needs and Disability) and in the civil courts. She has been instructed to draft opinions and pleadings in relation to those areas and is happy to assist with papers requiring a fast turnaround.
Although Employment Law is Laura’s primary area of focus, Laura has had the opportunity to experience other areas of law and in particular education law and discrimination claims in both the County and High Court. The experience Laura has in relation to Employment Law and the Equality Act 2010 has proven invaluable to developing this area of her practice.
Laura is part of the Attorney General’s Junior Juniors scheme and carries out pro bono work for Advocate.
Prior to the Bar, Laura worked for a multinational business support company regularly representing Respondents at Employment Tribunals across the United Kingdom. She successfully conducted multi-day tribunal hearings in numerous single and multiple issue claims of whistleblowing, unfair dismissal and discrimination.
