Gardner Leader celebrates five years in Maidenhead with the arrival of new solicitor
Award winning law firm, Gardner Leader welcomes its 19th new employee since first opening its doors in Maidenhead in October 2014, with the appointment of Laura Sentkovsky, Inheritance Protection solicitor.
Gardner Leader, which also has offices in Newbury and Thatcham, has seen its Maidenhead team grow from strength to strength. The firm now employs 29 staff at its offices at 7 Frascati Way, and offers a full range of legal services for businesses and individuals
Laura, who qualified in 2017 and lives in Windsor will be joining Gardner Leader’s 23 strong Inheritance Protection team, which is spread across all three offices, bringing specialist skills in all private client matters, including drafting Wills, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney, acting on Court of Protection matters and estate administration and planning.
Having trained and qualified at a property and private client practice in London, she has particular experience in the administration of estates and in managing complex relationships, working with the Litigation team when probate cases turn contentious. She is also highly skilled in advising on property related transactions and structuring such assets in a tax efficient manner.

Laura says, “It’s great to be part of such a fast growing, forward thinking and vibrant team. One of the first things I noticed was Gardner Leader’s committed and caring approach to clients and how staff are so passionate about what they do. It’s a way of working that appeals to my own nature and approach with clients, and so I was delighted when the opportunity came up to work at the firm.”
Jo Barton, Head of the Inheritance Protection team at Gardner Leader adds, “Laura was an obvious fit for the firm as she not only brings with her an extensive range of skills in inheritance law, but her personable and emphatic approach appeals to our clients during that can be one of the most difficult periods of their lives.”
