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 includes the initial startup 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.
