Overview

Lauren has creatively solved nuanced client problems, a skill first learned while working the front desk of a major Las Vegas hotel.

From startups to steering multi-million dollar corporate mergers and acquisitions, Lauren hears goals, ideas and challenges people can’t always articulate. Having worked at a major hotel, she took ownership of numerous guest challenges, listened for unspoken complications, then quickly and confidently offered solutions. She’s found these high-level customer service skills make for good big-picture response and strategy. 

Lauren has counseled companies on all aspects of transactional matters, which included the initial startup phase, corporate governance, debt and equity financings, and mergers and acquisitions. Her work has included negotiating, drafting and reviewing a wide variety of documents. Additionally she was a legal intern for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Lauren especially likes being part of a large national team that collaborates to find optimal solutions for the firm's clients.
