Known for her ability to facilitate difficult discussions, she helps parties resolve disputes both before and after litigation has been filed.

Professional Background

Until 2017, Laura was a compliance manager at Goldman Sachs and Co., where she gained extensive experience in both securities legal and regulatory matters, as well as personnel issues. A past manager of multiple international compliance teams, she is familiar with the challenges of working cross-culturally in a complex multinational organization. This understanding has been crucial to enabling her to quickly understand intra-firm conflicts to enable parties to achieve resolution of difficult intra-company issues.

Prior to joining Goldman Sachs, Laura was a bankruptcy and finance attorney at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP. Her deep experience with debtor-creditor issues and complex commercial disputes has enabled her to swiftly understand the legal and business background of her dispute resolution clients' disputes to help them arrive at resolution.


Laura is one of only 500 professionals in the country who have completed the American Bankruptcy Institute bankruptcy mediation training program. With extensive experience mediating both contractual and community disputes, Laura is able to help parties reach resolution by applying the tools of both directive and facilitative mediation. With a flexible communication style, Laura is able to meet parties where they are, and help them arrive where they need to be in order to understand their options and make the right decisions.
