Laura has a broad range of litigation experience, having worked in Brodies’ Commercial Litigation team, specialising in Corporate Restructuring and Insolvency Team since 2010, before a move into the Professional Indemnity team in 2017.  Laura has acted for a wide range of clients, including insurers, brokers, partnerships, companies, lenders, insolvency professionals, regulatory bodies, directors and individuals.

Laura is regularly instructed by insurers to defend claims against professionals, including solicitors, insolvency practitioners and accountants and has been involved in a variety of claims, including claims involving commercial and residential property, banking, bankruptcy, litigation, private client and construction work.  Laura’s experience of insolvency and commercial litigation regularly comes into play in her current role.  She has experience of advising on all aspects of commercial and personal insolvency law, director disqualification, enforcement of foreign judgments and more general commercial litigation matters.  

Laura is mindful of the need to take a pragmatic, commercial approach, as well as the importance of being aware of any reputational and business continuity issues.  Laura enjoys the opportunity to meet with clients and other professionals and was Chair of the Edinburgh Insolvency Discussion Group for three years prior to her move into the Professional Indemnity sphere.  Follow Laura and the rest of the team on twitter @BrodiesInsLaw.
