Partner & Head of Department

Laura Staples

Laura Staples HK Law

Laura is a Partner and Head of the Private Client Department, based in our Blandford office

As Private Client lawyers we have an interest in people and their affairs, whilst acting with discretion and empathy. Our Private Client lawyers are strong technically, have excellent communication skills, great attention to detail and strong drafting skills. I am proud to represent the expertise that my team, and I offer. We are a large regional department spread across the counties of Dorset and Somerset. We act for clients locally and internationally.
Our clients can have inherited wealth or have earned their wealth. Those clients who have inherited wealth tend to be more risk averse, in contrast to those clients who have earned their wealth and generally have a more commercial approach to risk.
We work hard to understand what is important to you and to present options that work for you. We will save you time, tax and guide you through the technicalities.
