Analytical and strategic, Lauren is a natural legal and business advocate for clients facing litigation.

Before pursuing legal studies and joining the firm, Lauren was an anthropology student, chosen to participate in a historical lab studying artifacts from a St. Louis archaeological site. The project involved meticulous handling of artifacts, research, reading, drafting of memoranda, archiving, problem-solving and reasoning of logical themes and strategies. Her rigorous fieldwork was an ideal foundation for her current work assisting clients as a litigator.

Lauren helps clients with complex commercial litigation in a wide variety of industries. Both team members and clients recognize her ability to incorporate long-range business goals into the solution of the legal problem at hand. She’s known for anticipating outcomes and avoiding the problems that can result from quick fixes. Lauren enjoys guiding a client’s most challenging legal dispute and streamlining the details to create a best solution.
