Lauren is an associate at Torkin Manes in our Not-for-Profit and Charities Law practice group. She advises clients in the not-for-profit and charitable sector on a variety of matters including corporate governance, risk management, privacy and access to information, compliance and directors’ and officers’ liability.
As an articling student at Torkin Manes, Lauren worked closely with the wills and estates group during her partner intensive program, where she gained exposure to estate and trust planning and administration, as well as estate litigation. During her articles, Lauren also gained experience in a variety of other practice areas including corporate/commercial law, civil litigation, real estate, and labour and employment law.
During law school, Lauren volunteered with several outreach organizations that serve the legal and non-legal needs of local communities, including Lawyers Feed the Hungry, Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund, and METRAC. Lauren’s involvement with not-for-profits and charities has helped her to understand and appreciate several of the issues that they face.
