Laura looks after a wide range of private and charitable trusts, overseeing the day to day administration, as well as annual tax compliance and accounting. She also works on the administration of estates, from preparing the inheritance tax accounts to collecting in assets, organising distributions to the beneficiaries and preparing estate accounts.
Laura likes to offer clients a rounded approach, and, where families are involved, she enjoys developing an understanding of the family’s circumstances – what their current situation is and what their plans for the future are. She prides herself on being able to explain details to her clients in a way which is both easy to understand and relevant.
Having joined Mercer & Hole as a trainee in 2008, Laura became ACCA qualified in 2011 and a full member of the Society for Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) in 2012. She is the treasurer for the Beds, Bucks & Herts branch of STEP and has served on the committee for many years.
Outside of work, Laura is the published author of an urban fantasy series. She has two dogs and competes with the younger in various working disciplines and confirmation showing. Laura is also a qualified heelwork to music judge.
