Lauren Russ advises clients in warranty and product liability cases. She has performed legal research, analyzed case files, drafted motions and legal memoranda and assisted with depositions. She has worked on cases involving food poisoning, motor vehicles, medical devices and asbestos. Most recently, Lauren was a summer associate at Bowman and Brooke.

While in law school, Lauren was student director of the Immigration and Human Rights Clinic and led a team of students working on asylum and family reunification cases. In 2020, she traveled to Tijuana, Mexico to assist migrants seeking asylum in the United States.

Outside the office, Lauren enjoys biking, playing on Bowman and Brooke’s softball team and swimming – preferably outdoors, when Minnesota weather allows. She also enjoys cooking while listening to Taylor Swift and recently devised the consummate black bean burger.
