Laura Stone, a partner at LGSH LLP, began her career with Ernst & Young LLP in the audit department. Laura then relocated abroad where she helped manage a hedge fund. Upon returning to the US, she joined a local accounting firm and became a partner three years later. In 2015, Laura merged her firm into LGSH LLP to be able to focus more on her clients’ needs and less on administrative duties.

Laura has worked extensively in real estate and has both strategic and transactional knowledge in the industry. In addition, Laura has worked in the area of international tax reporting and has successfully reduced penalties for non- reporting of foreign accounts through the appeals process. Her clients range from small start-up businesses to major companies and high net worth individuals and she serves both tax and audit clients. 

Laura’s passion is helping clients develop strategies to mitigate tax and also to educate them about the tax law and accounting guidelines. Laura considers her long-term client base to be more than just clients, but friends as well. 

Laura graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a bachelor’s degree in business economics and a minor in accounting. She has two daughters and loves music, attending concerts, traveling and spending time with her family.
