Laura Brown

Owner & Principal

Laura started out as a remote typist for Intelligent Office (now Williams Lea) before progressing to team leader.  Praised for her speed and accuracy, Laura developed a passion for providing outstanding administrative support, and pursued a career as a legal secretary working in-house.  


She progressed to a role with high street law firm Livingstone Brown in Glasgow.  She thrived in supporting vulnerable clients through contentious litigation, and became well versed in processing legal aid applications and accounts.


Later, she moved to corporate firm, Shoosmiths, in Edinburgh.  She was PA to Rod Macphail and Andrew Foyle, working with their debt recovery team.


Whilst working full time, she achieved two paralegal qualifications (criminal litigation and debt recovery) at the University of Stirling. 


Having developed the confidence to branch out on her own, Laura enjoys the flexibility and variety her business brings.


In her spare time, she enjoys running (5km to half marathon), honing her public speaking skills at her local speakers' club, and a wee bit of paper crafting.
