Lauralei leads our industry partnerships team and plays a key role in developing relationships with our most valued partners. The strategic partnerships she helps to forge are integral to cementing our position as market leaders.

A law graduate from the University of Warwick, Lauralei started her career at FTSE 100 business Hargreaves Lansdown, before moving into a marketing role at a boutique South West technology company.

In 2018, Lauralei joined ForrestBrown’s marketing team. This role involved managing campaigns and delivering flagship events for our valued partners and clients. In 2020, she became Senior Partnerships Manager. She has been integral in establishing strong alliances with some of the UK’s leading industry bodies ever since.

Through these relationships, Lauralei has helped clients to access millions of pounds in R&D tax relief, money used to invest in innovation and technical talent. She is passionate about helping businesses realise the full potential of claims.

Educating our partners on the benefits of the R&D incentives and challenging misconceptions is what motivates Lauralei. She is committed to providing a technically excellent service and forging lasting relationships.
