Laura is a talented and highly-valued member of our Corporate team. She provides commercially tailored advice to owner managed companies on matters such as mergers and acquisitions, capital restructuring and employee incentive schemes (such as EMI share option schemes).  She also frequently advises borrowers and lenders in relation to multi-million pound financing arrangements and the related security.

Laura recently assisted the founders and management team of Livingstone Technologies on the sale of a majority shareholding in the company to the Caryle Group.  The management team retained a substantial stake in the company and will continue to run it.

Since qualifying, Laura has formed part of the team providing corporate and commercial advice to the Efficio group of companies, including in relation to employee incentive schemes. In January 2016 she assisted in advising the founders and management team when Efficio obtained significant equity investment.

She also has experience of advising on corporate transactions with multi-jurisdiction elements, including  advising one of the firm’s large US clients on a strategic acquisition in the UK, and advising various UK based sellers of English companies on sales to foreign buyers including in the US and Germany.

Laura helped to guide us through the complex legal process, providing constant support and pragmatic advice together with fast turnaround times which helped us to successfully conclude the transaction.
