Lauren Grochow’s practice concentrates on complex business litigation. She has represented clients on a diverse range of matters that include shareholder derivative suits, corporate governance, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud. Her clients hail from a variety of industries, including aerospace, food and beverage, entertainment, healthcare and real estate. Her practice places particular emphasis on an intensive pre-trial motions practice. Lauren is dedicated to understanding her clients’ businesses, which allows her to strategically navigate the early stages of litigation, working to either obtain the complete dismissal of charges against her clients or to significantly increase their prospects of success at trial.

An active pro bono attorney, Lauren has partnered with the Los Angeles Center for Law and Justice to successfully represent a victim of domestic violence seeking a restraining order from her abuser. She also maintains ongoing involvement with the International Refugee Assistance Program, supervising local law students in their representation of victims of terrorism, violence and displacement in their efforts to safely relocate.

In 2018, Lauren was recognized by her peers as a Super Lawyer “Rising Star.” She also maintains a position on the Associate Board of Project Youth OCBF and the Chapman University School of Law Alumni Board.
