A little about Lauren

Powered by caffeine, caffeine & more caffeine, Lauren is a force to be reckoned with. As a double major in economics and philosophy, she can balance the quantitative against the qualitative to fit a wide array of her clients’ needs. She is a meticulous reader and researcher which comes in handy when she’s reading contracts and leases. Before M&A, Lauren worked primarily with investors and landlords, so she has the inside scoop when it comes to dealing with them. She goes into every meeting with all the facts and clients can rest assured that nothing will get past Lauren. Raised in Chicago, this lifelong Cubs fan is known to spend her free time walking around the city, enjoying a good book or checking out the newest local restaurants.


Lauren’s financial background paired with her in depth knowledge of leasing concepts and attention to detail allows her to excel. Whether she’s analyzing complex rent schedules or red-lining a lease document, Lauren’s approachable personality and quick wit make her easy to work with – we’re glad she’s on our team.”
