National law firm Polsinelli Shughart welcomes Lauren N. Wojtowicz as associate in the firm’s Trial department where she will concentrate her practice in the area of fiduciary liability and a broad spectrum of other business litigation issues.


“I’m excited to join a firm experiencing such phenomenal growth and reputation,” said Wojtowicz. “Polsinelli Shughart has a national reputation for its fiduciary liability litigation, and I look forward to collaborating with some of the most respected practitioners in the field.”


In her trial practice, Wojtowicz has represented both individuals and corporations, managing all aspects of litigation, discovery and depositions to motion practices through trial and post trial motion procedures. She has successfully tried cases in state and federal court and has also represented clients at a number of mediation proceedings which resulted in favorable settlements.


“We’re pleased to have Lauren join our firm. Before law school, she gained valuable experience in the business world by managing strategic outsourcing relationships for high-tech Silicon Valley companies,” said St. Louis Managing Director Randy S. Gerber. “She’s a good complement to our team.”


The addition of Wojtowicz to St. Louis occurs during an exciting period of growth for Polsinelli Shughart, which has opened new offices in Dallas and Los Angeles and added more than 39 attorneys nationwide. The National Law Journal ranked Polsinelli Shughart in 2011 as “the third fastest growing law firm in the country.”


Wojtowicz earned her law degree with honors in 2007 from Washington University School of Law-St. Louis. She received a B.S. degree, cum laude, in Business Administration from Bowling Green State University in 1997. She is a member of The Missouri Bar, the Illinois Bar Association and the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis.
