Laura’s practice encompasses internal investigations, government investigations and enforcement proceedings, white collar criminal defense, and complex litigation matters for clients in a wide variety of industries including education, healthcare, and financial services. She has experience guiding clients through pre-litigation investigations and managing the electronic discovery process for internal investigations and government inquiries.  Laura’s practice also includes advising clients in the sports & entertainment industry in matters concerning sponsorship agreements, marketing representation agreements, and Name, Image, and Likeness opportunities for collegiate athletes.  In addition, Laura maintains an active pro bono practice, in which she counsels and represents clients in matters related to unemployment benefits, evictions, immigration, and sealing criminal records.

Prior to joining Mintz, Laura was a litigation associate and earlier a summer associate at a Boston-based full-service law firm, where she worked on a broad range of employment, securities, and white collar matters.

During and immediately after law school, Laura served as a student public defender with the Committee for Public Counsel Services of the Plymouth County Trial Office in Brockton, Massachusetts. While attending law school, she worked as a government & neighborhood affairs assistant for the Boston Red Sox. Her role involved researching legislation and permitting issues, negotiating agreements with vendors, and managing outside counsels’ work on permitting and licensing matters.
