Laura is recommended in The Legal 500.

As a partner in Davidson Chalmers’ Environmental, Waste & Renewables Department I have a varied practice that covers renewable energy projects, environmental issues (particularly those in the waste sector), commercial property development work and Scottish rural property and estates.

I enjoy the unique nature of the transactions in environmental and development work, each of which require a bespoke but commercial approach.

I regularly contribute to several publications and journals, such as Scottish Planning and Environmental Law (SPEL), detailing the emerging developments in the field’s evolving legislation.

I am a co-founder of the Globalaw Renewables and Clean Tech Business Initiative which is an active group of European and American member firms. This initiative has successfully exhibited and presented at trade fairs around the world and providing articles for publications such as Windpower Monthly

In April 2015 I was accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in environmental law.

Out of the office, I enjoy taking in the beautiful surroundings of North Berwick where I currently live, especially the beach when the sun is shining!
