Overview

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

Whether counseling startups or steering multi-million dollar corporate mergers and acquisitions, Lauren hears goals, ideas and challenges clients 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 legal response and strategy. 

Lauren counsels companies on all aspects of transactional matters, which include the initial start-up phase, corporate governance, debt and equity financings, and mergers and acquisitions. Her work includes 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 legal team that collaborates to find optimal solutions for clients.
