Overview

Lauren utilizes her knowledge as a real estate attorney to advise clients on the development of renewable energy projects.

With family members who worked in the industry, Lauren was exposed to real estate matters at a young age. She knew she wanted to work in a field that created tangible results in communities, and as an attorney, she enjoys collaborating with parties on all sides of a transaction to reach a common goal.

Lauren has represented buyers, sellers and developers in the acquisition, disposition and development of a wide array of commercial real property across the United States. She has experience reviewing, drafting and negotiating purchase contracts, leases, closing documents and other real estate agreements, as well as handling real estate due diligence for a variety of transactions, with a focus on title and survey review. Lauren brings a unique perspective and insight on curative title matters and the overall closing process from her prior experience working in-house with a title company.

While Lauren’s real estate practice has encompassed a variety of fields, she focuses her practice on clients in the renewable energy industry, and has contributed to acquisitions involving renewable energy farms, as well as water rights. She enjoys working on projects that will help the environment, the local community and the world as a whole, and she’s enthusiastic to play a role in a rapidly growing industry.
