Team Feature 8/10: Laura Zander

Laura ZanderLaura Zander trained at a national law firm, qualifying as a solicitor in 2008, choosing to specialise in medical negligence claims.

She joined the Price Slater Gawne Team way back in 2012, so she’s practically part of the furniture!

Laura is passionate about fighting for compensation for her clients to enable them to rebuild their lives. She also works hard to uncover explanations as to what went wrong and why.

Here are a few other things you might not yet know about her …

Name Laura Zander
Job Title Solicitor in the Clinical Negligence Department
Joined the team in October 2012
What does your role entail? I run a varied caseload of clinical negligence claims and have also represented clients at inquests. I am a deputy team leader and supervise other members of staff within my team
What do you like about working at PSG? Price Slater Gawne is a very people orientated firm. There is a real sense of us all being a team and everyone is very supportive. The firm is also ahead of it’s time in relation to flexible and home working which makes it a great place to work
What’s at the top of your bucket list? I would love to travel around China and Japan
What are your favourite memories from the past 10 years? So many to choose from. On a work-front, joining Price Slater Gawne and the early days of having our team meetings on a farm (one of which included a director bringing his pet dog). We now have a very lovely office to hold our meetings in (and I don’t think anyone brings in any pets) which shows you how much can change in 10 years!
On a personal note, I’ve had a wonderful last 10 years which has included getting married, having two children and going on some lovely holidays
What is your biggest pet peeve? People who are cruel to others
If you could change anything about your area of work, what would it be?   I would like funding to be available to represent families at inquests. There are so many families who cannot access help and support at a time when they need it most, and yet if an NHS Trust is involved they will be represented at the public’s expense.
