Laura is a Partner in the Tax & Trusts and Wills & Estates teams.
Laura has over 12 years’ experience in private client work specialising in wills and inheritance tax planning, the administration of deceased estates, the creation and administration of trusts, powers of attorney and court of protection.
She has a particular interest in multi-generational planning for families helping them to achieve their aims in a tax efficient way. Her focus is on providing personable and practical advice in what can often be complex and difficult circumstances for families.

- providing advice to a client at the end of their life to ensure tax provision for various beneficiaries through the use of trusts; and
- acting in the administration of an estate that involved a complex foreign trust arrangement to ensure the UK beneficiaries interests were protected.
