Legal Manager London
Profile of Laurie Ford

I joined D Young & Co in 2022 after completing an undergraduate degree in chemistry and a postgraduate diploma in law. I’ve really enjoyed taking this analytical background and applying it to the commercial issues I now face.

Since joining the team I have assisted on a range of contentious and non-contentious matters relating to trade marks, design rights, and copyright. I find it very rewarding to play a part in protecting our clients’ brands, and enjoy the varied nature of the tasks I encounter whilst doing so.
