Laurence Newman


On the UK side of his work, Laurence acts for a portfolio of owner managed business clients, primarily those in the property and service sectors, that have an international dimension.

Laurence is jointly responsible for our grant and public sector audit group which deals with public sector audits in the UK, Europe and throughout the rest of the world. His work for the European Commission and other international aid agencies very often involves managing the co-ordination of teams responsible for audits across the EU by an international network of audit firms.

As a director on the board of our international network Russell Bedford International, he is actively involved in its administration and attends most of its international conferences.


As the firm’s best skier (a skill he acquired in childhood), Laurence also enjoys travelling and is a self-declared Francophile. Researching and sampling primarily ‘old world’ wines is another of his interests and, as a lifelong Chelsea supporter, he enjoys the occasional visit to Stamford Bridge.

Laurence speaks conversational French and German.
