Originally from Wimbledon Laura Rhodes went to college in London before taking up a training contract with Eldridges in 2002. She was made partner in 2013. Laura specialises in commercial and residential conveyancing and in property law where her warm and friendly approach - as well as super efficiency - puts clients at their ease as they come to discuss matters of crucial importance. It is the variety of her work that she enjoys; she may be helping an elderly couple looking to downsize, negotiating the selling of a coffee shop, or guiding a first time buyer through the mortgage process.
She enjoys the fast pace of the commercial world and notes the many word of mouth recommendations that are building up following recent transactions.
Many residential transactions can be done from afar, and local knowledge about access or flood-risk areas, Laura says, is highly valued. By the same token she has many clients no longer on the Island who know their affairs will continue to be well looked after.
