Lauren Prease most enjoys the practice of law when challenged with an obstacle for her or the team. Naturally inquisitive, she embraces her creativity to find the linchpin that helps further the case, even if it means digging deeper and utilizing uncommon resources.

Practicing in the firm’s Pharmaceutical & Medical Device and Toxic Torts & Products Liability groups, Lauren is experienced in all phases of the litigation process, from preparing written discovery, authoring various pleadings and motions including dispositive motions, and preparing witnesses for deposition and trial testimony, to advising the trial team regarding the presentation of science-based issues relating to the defense of mass tort claims in complex litigation.

Prior to joining the firm, Lauren worked on a variety of litigation matters, including pharmaceutical claims, product safety violations, financial practice disputes, and Congressional challenges to contract bids. She has experience in multiple aspects of document review, as well as drafting motions, orders, and memoranda. Immediately following law school, she worked as a Post-Graduate Intern to The Honorable Erik P. Christian of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, and subsequently as a Law Clerk to The Honorable Brian F. Holeman also of the D.C. Superior Court.

Lauren received her law degree from George Washington University Law School, where she served as the 1L Coordinator of the Black Law Students Association and worked as a Student Attorney at Rising for Justice, a nonprofit legal clinic, where she successfully represented an adult and a juvenile client in D.C. Superior Court.

She graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.A. in Political Science and Sociology, where she was a Sankofa Scholar, which honors the academic excellence of African American students. During her career at Notre Dame, she served in three different offices of the NAACP, including a one-year term as Vice President. She also volunteered at a South Bend community center tutoring elementary school-aged children living in underserved communities.

Lauren’s creativity doesn’t stop with the practice of law. She also enjoys the concepts of mechanical engineering and the laws of physics where she finds the theory of relativity fascinating. When not practicing law, she applies what she learns by restoring pocket watches to working order.
