'Laura’s representation of her client’s interests was… exemplary. She knows when to cross examine, and more crucially, when not to. She did an excellent job taking evidence from those witnesses from the company she was representing. She clearly had the ear of the court and the interaction between herself and the judge was indicative of the regard and respect that he had for her abilities. Her written submissions were forensic and addressed every issue comprehensively.'Peer testimonial
