Laura Sheriff

Licensed Conveyancer
Department: Residential Property

Laura joined Ridley & Hall in late 2013 as an administrator after achieving a degree in Business Management and travelling the world. Laura had never worked in the Law sector before joining the firm but took an instant like and understanding.

Laura moved into the property team in late 2014 and in the following year she started the training to become a Licenced Conveyancer. Laura studied for this qualification in her own time and passed all exams and assignments with flying colours.

Laura, who has been PA to Alison Mason (Partner and Head of Residential Conveyancing) for the past 3 years, now works alongside Alison with a joint caseload providing the clients with exceptional client care and efficiency.

Alison and Laura specialise in all aspects of residential conveyancing to include sales, purchases, remortgages, transfer of equity, declaration of trusts and advice needed by elderly clients when considering transferring their main residence to family members, and right to buy of council houses.

Outside of work Laura loves to travel to experience the world and different cultures, she enjoys socialising at weekends, keeping fit, and a good jigsaw.
