Biography

Donald, LauraLaura is an experienced Solicitor Advocate with her key area of expertise being clinical defence. She carries out solicitor advocacy in respect of Public Inquiries and Fatal Accident Inquiries.

She is ranked in band 1 by Chambers UK for clinical negligence work and is described as "a formidable opponent" who "fights her client's corner very hard."  She has "unsurpassed knowledge of the Scottish medical scene" as is a "supremely well-organised" practitioner. 

Laura has vast experience of representing the interests of various clinicians in actions of negligence, at the GMC, GDC and at Fatal Accident Inquiries throughout Scotland. She has been applauded for her “negotiation skills and pragmatism” and her “ability to grasp the issues in complex cases” is admired (Legal 500). Her particular interest is in representing clinicians before the GMC and the GDC, where she acts as junior counsel in representing their interests. Her "dynamic preparation" before a case and her passionate defence are prominent characteristics of her work (Chambers UK).

"She's extraordinarily efficient. She has an intensity of focus that is hard to match." (Chambers UK)

Laura has also been instructed to represent individuals, and groups of individuals at three recent Scottish Public Inquiries, appearing as junior counsel in one, whilst juggling the demands of the large volume of paperwork involved.

“The level of service has always been excellent, with properly experienced solicitors dealing with appropriate cases" Legal 500
