Appointed “Firm of the Year” in the Appellate Law category for the second consecutive year

US News & World Report/Best Law Firms 2014

"Lauren Goldman is 'a superb relationship partner who drafts excellent briefs and provides great judgment on all legal issues.'"

The Legal 500 United States

Lauren Goldman serves on Mayer Brown's Management Committee and is co-head of the firm's Supreme Court & Appellate group. She is a commercial litigator and highly respected appellate lawyer who has briefed and argued numerous appeals addressing issues of importance to the business community in state and federal courts throughout the United States.

Lauren has served as lead legal strategy counsel to Altria Group for nearly a decade in connection with more than a dozen high-stakes jury trials, including two cases in which plaintiffs unsuccessfully sought more than $1 billion in damages. She also regularly defends Facebook, Shutterfly, and other major technology companies in significant putative class actions and other litigation across the United States. Several of Lauren’s matters helped persuade Law360 to name Mayer Brown a “Firm of the Year” in January 2017.

Lauren is also highly experienced in challenging excessive punitive damages awards. She has handled legal issues at retrials in California, Florida, and Oregon. In each case, the retrial jury awarded a small fraction of the original jury's verdict.

According to Legal 500, clients say that Lauren is "super client-focused, extremely responsive, an excellent writer, and a poised and prepared oral advocate." Clients describe her as "smart, hardworking, and very analytical," with an "unmatched ability to work well with other lawyers."

Lauren has been interviewed regarding Supreme Court developments on Bloomberg Law Radio, 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. She has also been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, and CNNMoney, among other publications.

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.
