Laura Brown

Legal Assistant

Laura began her career as a remote typist for Intelligent Office (now Williams Lea), quickly rising to the role of team leader. Celebrated for her speed and accuracy, Laura's passion for exceptional administrative support led her to a position as a legal secretary.


She honed her skills at the Glasgow-based high street firm, Livingstone Brown. There, she supported vulnerable clients through complex litigation, gaining expertise in processing legal aid applications and accounts.


Laura later transitioned to the corporate world, joining Shoosmiths in Edinburgh as PA to Rod Macphail and Andrew Foyle within their debt recovery team.


While working full-time, she earned three prestigious paralegal qualifications in criminal litigation, debt recovery and employment litigation from the University of Stirling and the University of Strathclyde.


Empowered by her experience, Laura confidently launched her own business, enjoying the flexibility and diverse challenges it offers.


Outside of work, Laura is an avid runner (tackling distances from 5km to half marathons), a member of her local speakers' club, and an amateur latin dancer.
