Lauren's unique skillset is why dozens of Fortune 500 companies trust her to represent them in U.S. district courts, the International Trade Commission, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, including AT&T, BMW, Cisco, DISH, Dell, Ericsson, Fujifilm, HP, LG Electronics, Lyft, Motorola, Samsung, and Sony. Her notable wins earned her the 2023 Law360 Intellectual Property Rising Star award, given to only five attorneys nationwide.
Her recent wins include defeating a $2.6 billion case against DISH. Lauren played a key role in designing the trial strategy and briefing, which the judge commented was instrumental in his decision. In another win for DISH, this time at the ITC, she and her team obtaining a ruling that would exclude Peloton’s, iFit’s, and Mirror’s fitness products from importation into the United States. She also successfully defended Dell during a 10-day jury trial. As embedded appellate counsel, her mid-trial motion for judgment as a matter of law reduced Dell’s liability by over $100 million, and she helped design several trial strategies that resulted in a jury verdict of $2 million instead of the plaintiff’s $46 million demand.
Before joining Baker Botts, Lauren clerked for the Honorable Raymond T. Chen of the Federal Circuit. With her appellate focus, Lauren has been counsel of record in dozens of patent appeals. She regularly argues before the Federal Circuit, including recently arguing an issue of first-impression involving statutory interpretation of the America Invents Act.
In addition to her client work, Lauren is also dedicated to her community.

She spends time leading various firm initiatives and has served on the firm's employment, recruitment, and diversity committees. Lauren also frequently lectures on intellectual property topics, including speaking at AIPLA and the Federal Circuit Bar Association's Bench and Bar, where she serves on the Board of Directors and previously as the Chair of the NextGen, Law Clerks, and Law Students Committee.
