You could say I’m client obsessed! I place our clients front and centre, making sure my service is individually targeted to assist them in achieving their specific goals.

Laura Johnstone

Director, Business Advisory

“My client-centric approach is based on providing collaborative advice, which is a blend of strategy, compliance and business advice, with a strong focus on my client’s needs first, regulations second.” 

As a Director at William Buck, Laura assists privately owned businesses to achieve their financial goals.

Laura has a first-hand understanding of the issues private businesses are facing and what makes them tick through her husband’s commercial construction business.

Her expertise is based on a profound legislative knowledge and understanding the client’s point of view which she uses to solve complex problems. Laura thrives on being a trusted advisor and derives satisfaction from assisting her clients in growing their business and knowing they can ‘sleep at night’ as their business is well taken care of.
