During her time working in the central belt, Lauren was recommended as a rural property lawyer in the Legal 500 international law directory.

Lauren would be happy to discuss any property queries with existing or prospective clients.

She is also a member of the Agricultural Law Association and regularly attends events with other professionals to keep up-to-date with developments within the sector.
Out with work Lauren takes part in many local events and festivals, enjoys walking and taking in the natural beauty of Orkney and looking after her dog, Lola.
