Lauren Barrett is an associate in the Business Law Group, where she primarily specializes in transactions related to mergers and acquisitions, venture capital financings, and general capital markets. She provides strategic counsel in relation to public offerings, equity compensation matters, SEC reporting and disclosure, corporate governance, and general corporate matters.
Before Lauren became an attorney, her family sold their company to a large entity and the experience influenced the type of lawyer she has since become. Her motivation to provide exemplary service to her clients stems from seeking balanced representation in transactions. “My clients know that I am in this with them and that I have their best interest as my goal,” she says. “Often, they have worked incredibly hard to build their business and prepare for a major transaction. I want them to feel fully supported during this process and know that they have attentive legal representation who can relate on a personal level.”
