Keynote Presenter, E-communication Expert/Counselor
Throughout her career in ediscovery, legal recruiting, information management, and emerging technologies one thing has remained the same: Lauren's goal is always to be the "go-to" for her clients; the person they could call day or night who would always help solve the problem by drawing on her expertise and vast network within the legal industry.
In 2016, she founded Ascension Legal Consulting which allows her to serve as an unbiased advisor to General Counsel and law firms in an effort to efficiently and effectively take control of the e-discovery process. By leveraging her ediscovery expertise, litigation experience and vast network, Lauren is able to develop the best plan of action with a focus on cost savings and transparency. She works alongside outside counsel to put their strategy into action, in addition to managing the vendors, budget and overall execution of the ediscovery phase. Lauren also works alongside Veritas Advisory Group, Inc. as the Co-Founder of their Annual Women's Legal Forum.
