Capital is delighted to announce Laura Herdman's promotion, to Associate.

Laura joined us in August 2015 and has made a significant contribution to the Corporate and Commercial team. Her background is in corporate finance - mainly with start-ups and SMEs. She has generated valuable new relationships for the firm, for many of whom she has become the main client contact.

Over the past two years, her practice has developed and she now has a key role in many of the team’s more complex corporate and private equity transactions. Tom Kelleher, a Corporate Partner, said 'Laura’s promotion was a no-brainer – she is a fantastic lawyer who balances strong technical and deal management skills with an innate ability to understand what the client needs. Our private equity practice is central to the firm’s growth, so we are very pleased to have another lawyer with these skills. She is hugely valued.'

‘I am delighted to be progressing my career at Capital – doing some challenging work for fantastic clients’, says Laura. ‘It’s such an innovative firm with a really ambitious culture – it’s a great place to work.’

Well done Laura!
