Laura is a partner in the Employment team. She practices both contentious and non-contentious employment work but she specialises in the non-contentious side.
With over 30 years of experience, Laura advises corporate clients in a wide variety of sectors as diverse as luxury goods, film and television production, art galleries, pharmaceutical, shipping and distribution of safety equipment.
She has also dealt with many high-profile senior individuals in the fields of banking, media, advertising, and journalism, advising in negotiations on contracts and settlements as well as sensitive, confidential, and personal issues relating to employment.
Laura is a skilled negotiator, robust but fair, and believes that conciliation can be a far more effective method than confrontation when achieving a good result. She approaches each case individually, getting to know her clients’ needs in depth. No matter the difficulty or intensity of a negotiation, Laura believes that a sense of humour and commercial pragmatism is critical to success.
“Laura Livingstone not only gave me superb advice but took bold decisions and won, with quiet stealth, a cool head and bags of determination. I’ve lost count of the number of people to whom I have recommended her services.”
