Solicitor - Clinical Negligence
Laura grew up in Mid Wales and studied Law at Aberystwyth University. She moved to London to study her LPC at the University of Law, Bloomsbury, completing the LPC with a Distinction in every module. Almost immediately after completing her LPC, she secured a job as a legal assistant to a partner within the clinical negligence department at Irwin Mitchell’s London office. Within three months she was promoted to paralegal and within a further six months, she was awarded a highly competitive training contract. This was due to start two years later but after one year as a paralegal, she was told she could start her training contract early. She undertook seats in clinical negligence, public law and Court of Protection. She qualified on 1 March 2017, after 18 months training. She then spent eight months at Irwin Mitchell as a newly qualified solicitor before moving to Stewarts in January 2018. Here she specialised in catastrophic work and her caseload consisted of brain, spine and birth injury cases. In March 2019 she was promoted to associate.
Laura and her husband made the decision to move back to Mid Wales so that they could raise their daughter surrounded by family and friends.
Laura joined Lanyon Bowdler in 2020 and is part of the clinical negligence department. Her caseload now consists of claims arising from delay in or failure to diagnose, refer or treat a range of serious conditions by GPs, paramedics, A&E staff or surgical specialists, resulting in a significant injury.
