Laura has previously practiced as a barrister and solicitor in New Zealand including practicing with the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment before carving out an impressive reputation globally in the horse racing industry working with some of the biggest names.
After working with the first lady of racing in Australia, Gai Waterhouse, Laura was selected as a graduate in the Godolphin Flying Start program. Godolphin, owned and run by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Ruler of Dubai, selects a limited number of graduates each year from around the world to take them around the world to train them in relation to all aspects of the horse racing industry.
Following the program, Laura completed internships with Nicoma Bloodstock in Lexington, Kentucky, Vinery Stud in Australia, leading South African trainer Mike de Kock in Dubai, and a stint at Highclere Racing and Carisbrooke Stud. Her most recent job was as the racing manager for the highly successful Triple Crown Syndications company which has been the leading horse syndication company in Australia for the past few years, highlighted by multiple Everest successes.
In addition to specific services for the horse racing industry, Laura adds expertise to the firm’s commercial practice, offering advice in all elements of commercial matters for all industries and advises on commercial transactions, agreements, commercial leases, deeds, litigation and any strategic advice.
