"Super quick and helpful"
"This is the second time I've engaged Laura, she helped with my exit from my last role and much improved the terms of my new role. Quick, professional and great advice. I highly recommend Laura."
"Laura has been fantastic to work with. My project was to review and negotiate terms on a SaaS technology company employee severance agreement. Seeing as this agreement included material Options elements I was rigorous in my selection process. I short-listed to the proposals to 3, had initial calls with each and then carried out online research. I selected to work with Laura and she's been great. She has been easy to work with, responsive, patient, knowledgeable and commercially savvy. She has protected my interests whilst finding constructive ways forwards with my previous employer. I would highly recommend her and will work with her again myself."
"Laura was knowledgable, quick to respond, and explained the issues clearly. Pleasure to work with."
"Very patient, kind, and helpful."
