Partner at Mayer Brown LLP

Biography

Lauren Goldman serves as co-head of Mayer Brown's worldwide Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice and is a member of the firm's Management Committee. She practices in the Supreme Court & Appellate group in the firm’s New York office. Lauren has briefed and argued numerous appeals addressing issues of importance to the business community in state and federal courts around the country.

Lauren’s practice is not limited to the appellate courts: she has extensive experience litigating complex legal issues at all levels. In the past five years, she has served as lead legal strategy counsel in connection with more than a dozen high-stakes jury trials, including two cases in which the plaintiffs unsuccessfully sought more than $1 billion in damages. Lauren works closely with trial teams to obtain legal rulings that maximize their ability to obtain a defense verdict, as well as handling all aspects of appellate preservation before, during, and after trial. Lauren has a particular focus on mass actions, and has worked with trial teams to develop legal arguments and strategy in several recent and pending class actions in state and federal courts.

According to Legal 500, clients say that Lauren is "super client-focused, extremely responsive, an excellent writer, and a poised and prepared oral advocate." They describe her as “smart, hardworking, and very analytical,” with an “unmatched ability to work well with other lawyers.” Lauren has been interviewed about Supreme Court developments on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” and FoxBusiness’s “Happy Hour,” as well as by the WSJ Law Blog, The American Lawyer, Newsweek, and the National Law Journal, and has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, and CNNMoney, among other publications.

Lauren is particularly experienced in briefing and arguing punitive damages issues; she has worked on many successful appeals from large punitive awards, including Philip Morris USA v. Williams, 127 S. Ct. 1057 (2007). Lauren has also handled legal issues at retrials limited to the amount of punitive and/or compensatory damages in Oregon, California, and Florida; in each case, the retrial jury awarded a fraction of the original jury’s verdict. Lauren writes and speaks regularly on the subject of punitive damages law and is a co-author of the chapter on punitive damages in the West treatise Business and Commercial Litigation in Federal Courts.

Lauren also writes and speaks often about appellate practice more generally, and is a co-author of Mayer Brown’s Federal Appellate Practice treatise, published by BNA Books in December 2008 and again in December 2013.

Lauren received her JD magna cum laude from New York University School of Law, where she was Order of the Coif and a member of the Law Review. In addition, she won the law school’s moot court competition. Following graduation, she served as a law clerk to Judge Dennis Jacobs of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
