Lauren Sugarman, Esq. / Managing Director


Lauren joined SJL Attorney Search after several years as a corporate associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP and Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP. Her practice focused on leveraged finance, representing both borrowers and lenders in a variety of transactions. 

Lauren understands the motivations and goals that drive a legal career and the importance of making the right professional move. Her own lateral experience makes her uniquely qualified to guide others through this process.

Lauren graduated, summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa from Georgetown University with a B.A. in History and Art History. She earned her law degree from Georgetown University Law Center, where she was on the board of The Tax Lawyer as the Executive Operations Editor. While in law school, she also served as a Peer Advisor, helping first year law students navigate on-campus recruiting and the rigors of the 1L curriculum. During the summer of 2011, Lauren interned for The Honorable Colleen McMahon of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Lauren remains an active alumna of Georgetown University Law Center and conducts alumni admissions interviews for prospective students.

While not working, Lauren enjoys vacationing at the beach, tailgating for the New York Jets and attempting to teach herself how to cook.
