She has experience with district and appellate court, the Supreme Court, TTAB, USPTO, and UDRP proceedings. Outside of litigation, Lauren counsels her clients on trademark rights, website terms of service, patentability, infringement and invalidity opinions, intellectual property diligence, and IP-related agreements. Her pro bono work includes seeking Combat-Related Special Compensation benefits for veterans, representing non-profits and start-ups in trademark disputes, and drafting amicus briefs for trade organizations such as the NYIPLA and INTA.
Lauren’s engineering background and love of law-related dramas drove her to pursue a career in intellectual property. Although the legal industry is not the same as it is depicted on television, Lauren enjoys the intellectual challenges of IP law and developing creative solutions for her clients. Since 2015, Super Lawyers Magazine has recognized her as a “Rising Star” in Intellectual Property Litigation, an honor bestowed upon only 2.5% of New York lawyers under the age of 40. In 2017, Lauren was selected by the Business Council of Westchester as one of its 40-Under-40 Rising Stars. Lauren received her J.D. from New York University and a B.S.E. from Duke University. Before joining Leason Ellis, Lauren was an associate at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in New York.
