Laurence commenced his family pupillage in chambers in July 2021. He is under the supervision of Neil Kerr, Catherine Piskolti and Jessica Brindle.

Before transferring to the Bar, Laurence’s career involved managing procurement teams, negotiating contracts, and acquiring companies. He is a seasoned commercial dealmaker with a breadth of life experience, including care for people on the margins of society. He has chaired a charity, and led frontline teams working with homeless and vulnerable people.

Laurence’s legal experience includes working with Signature Litigation and Mason Bullock Solicitors. He has volunteered extensively with Support Through Court and has marshalled in the Crown Court, the Family Court and the High Court.
