North East Law Firm builds up Wills Trust and Probate Team

CaptureGORDON Brown Law Firm’s newest recruit is set to bring a wealth of knowledge in her new role, as the Newcastle and Chester le Street-based Firm continues to expand its Wills Trusts and Probate Department.

30-year-old Solicitor Laura Brydon has joined the Firm’s Wills Trusts and Probate team and will work closely with Partner Rebecca Harbron-Gray, bringing the team total to seven.

Laura, who is from Cramlington, graduated in Law at the University of Sunderland and has a Masters in Law from Northumbria University.  She began her career with Sunderland Firm Longden Walker & Renney Solicitors, where she initially trained as a Paralegal before qualifying as a Solicitor specialising in the private client arena.

Laura said: “I get real satisfaction from working in this area of Law and, having worked with private clients as a Paralegal and experiencing other aspects of law during my career, I know this is the area for me.  There is real variety in my day to day work as it is so diverse and I get to have a lot of client contact, which makes the job so worthwhile and rewarding.

“I see making the move to Gordon Brown Law Firm as a natural progression of my career as it is such a renowned firm with a great reputation and further opportunity for continued professional development.”

In addition to the Wills and Probate offering, Gordon Brown specialises in multiple service lines including Residential Conveyance, Family matters, Dispute Resolution, and Corporate and Commercial.


Rebecca Harbron-Gray who is a Partner at Gordon Brown and heads up Wills Trusts and Probate with the Firm, said: “We are very happy to have Laura on our team. As well as the process of Laura joining Gordon Brown being natural for her, it was natural for our team as well – she fits in perfectly and is already proving popular with clients. We are looking forward to working with her as the team continues to go from strength to strength.”
