Laura joined Meridian in March 2017 on a nine month secondment from the national law firm, Shoosmiths LLP. 

Laura worked 18 months in the Corporate team at Shoosmiths and is continuing to apply and develop this knowledge at Meridian. 

Laura has also worked in-house at a global software company and at an engineering firm in the oil and gas sector. These experiences have enabled her to apply the law to commercial situations and have encouraged her to think strategically and practically when providing client solutions.

Laura has a keen interest in finding out how businesses in different industries operate and her role at Meridian allows her to work with a broad range of businesses and entrepreneurs in a wide variety of sectors.

Personal statement

At Meridian, I have been lucky to work closely with entrepreneurs, start-ups and companies ready for the next growth stage. I hope to continue working on many of these transactions when I return to the  Shoosmiths’ Corporate team.

Outside of work I enjoy exploring the coast and countryside and you’ll often find me cooking for friends at the weekends.
