Lauren works in the welcome team in the personal injury department. Her role involves taking initial details from new clients for potential claims, before assessing the prospects of success and liability. If a claim can be taken on, Lauren discusses the funding options available, sets up the file and generates the initial documentation. Lauren then has to locate and correspond with insurers before submitting the claim to the correct insurer. Lauren handles a claim until a decision on liability has been made.
Lauren has recently been assisting the clinical negligence solicitor, through reviewing medical records and serious incident reports, as well as applying for bespoke after the event insurance policies.
After completing a placement within a criminal law firm and a commercial law firm, Lauren studied law at the University of Northampton, gaining a high achievers scholarship for her A-Level results. During her second year of university, Lauren was elected to be the CoppaFeel! President of the ‘Uni Boob Team’, with the mission to raise awareness of breast cancer to students. The team successfully raised over £1300, and won the Northampton Student’s Union Volunteer and Social Enterprise Award, for the Event of the Year for the CoppaFeel Wear it Pink Social, 2017. Through this, Lauren also gained an IPM award in marketing.
At the end of her second year of university, Lauren was awarded the Shoosmiths Academic Excellence Award, for being the highest achieving student in the second year, in the year 2016/2017.
After beginning the third year of university, Lauren was awarded The Neuberger Prize from The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, gaining a five year student membership. After achieving a first class in an Equity and Trusts essay, Lauren had this piece of work published.
After finishing her exams, Lauren was awarded the Max Engel Memorial Fund Scholarship, an award given to the most deserving final year student in 2018. She then went on to win the Northamptonshire Law Society Prize, for Outstanding Academic Achievement across her degree.
Shortly after finishing her exams, Lauren joined Tollers in June 2018, before graduating from the University of Northampton in July 2018, with a first class Degree in Law (With Honours).
Outside of the office, Lauren enjoys attending concerts and gigs. She is also an avid Tottenham Hotspur fan and tries to go to as many matches as possible. Lauren still volunteers for the charity CoppaFeel! And still fundraises for them.
Lauren has also been a member of the student council whilst studying at the University of Northampton, representing the volunteering and societies. Lauren has also previously volunteered at her secondary school, providing a revision group for law students.
