Lauren O’Neill joined Lawtrades in October and is part of our sales team. Based in New Jersey, Lauren previously worked with the business development side at Orrick and brings an interesting mix of experience of both legal and start-up knowledge. Let’s get to know her a little better!
Can you share 2 interesting facts about yourself?
I was a ballerina many moons ago. My great-great x 5 grandfather, George Clymer, signed the Declaration of Independence - that makes me a Daughter of the American Revolution (DAR). Where my history buffs at?!
How do you spend your weekends?
On any given weekend - during any given season - you'll likely find me on the beach with my family. One of the many perks of living at the Jersey Shore.
What is the most unconventional job you have ever had?
Not unconventional, just life-altering. Being promoted to "Mom & CEO of Household" with the arrival of my son. Then building the team by adding a daughter...and let us not forget about the new hire on the way - coming Christmas Day 2021.
Why did you choose to join Lawtrades?
To be a part of something great. Many of my previous clients were early-stage startups. In learning more about the formation process, raising capital, driving a vision, and creating a culture - I made it a personal (not just professional) priority to dip out of the Corporate world and find that perfect team. Oh, hey #WholeSquad.
What are your primary responsibilities?
I'll be engaging prospects in our orbit more thoughtfully to convert our awesome community into new business. Let's not forget nurturing current client relationships - with the goal of institutionalizing them. Lawtrades or bust.
What are you most looking forward to in this position?
Being a champion of what we're building and being a part of our growth!
Where can you help the most in this position?
I'm a relationship person - constantly connecting the dots and making introductions. Hoping this will be valuable to the entire team in some way, shape, or form.
