Since qualifying in 2013, Laura has been involved in advising project consortia, funders, contractors and service providers on a wide range of infrastructure projects. She has strong expertise in the operational aspects of PPP projects, in particular in relation to variations to complex PFI documentation (including extensions to project facilities, advising on consequences of NHS Trust mergers, interfaces with multiple stakeholders, major changes to the provision of services, savings initiatives and efficiencies, the replacement of sub-contractors, and streamlining the lender approval process under finance documents).
Laura's advice looks to bring efficiencies and value for money initiatives to her projects, through the use of advice helplines for clients, precedent forms of documents, and deemed consent for funder approval. In 2015, Laura completed a part time secondment to a multi-national public transport company assisting them on their successful rail franchising bid. Laura has also previously completed a client secondment to a major international insurer, and spent six months working in our Dubai office.
