Overview

LAUREN HELPS CORPORATE ENTITIES NAVIGATE COMPLEX GOVERNMENT ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS AND IDENTIFY POTENTIAL COMPLIANCE ISSUES BEFORE THEY BECOME A PROBLEM.

Lauren is an associate in Dorsey’s Government Enforcement and Corporate Investigations practice group, where she guides corporate clients through government investigations and enforcement actions brought by the Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, Securities and Exchange Commission, and state agencies.  Lauren uses her creative problem solving skills to help clients avoid litigation, and, when necessary, achieve a positive result in civil lawsuits and enforcement actions.
