    Lauren Burgon: Protecting Your Business Assets


    About Lauren:

    I have a solo practice based in West Seattle, where I have lived for more than 20 years.  My practice focuses primarily on business law and the needs of business owners.

    My clients rely on me to provide reliable, timely, and affordable assistance.  Typical clients are services providers such as therapists, business consultants, bookkeepers, copywriters, and remodeling contractors.  My services include advising on employment issues such as hiring/firing and paid time off, drafting/revising independent contractor agreements, employment agreements and client services agreements, reviewing commercial leases, and advising on copyright and trademark issues.

    I grew up in Massachusetts, and graduated with a degree in English from Middlebury College in Vermont.  I moved to Seattle right after college, and graduated from the University of Washington School of Law in 1991.  I have two fabulous kids who are almost grown, and enjoy close relationships with my extended family, who have all migrated to West Seattle over the years.   

    I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce, am on the Board of  the Seattle-area entrepreneurs’ group Women Business Owners, volunteer on a weekly basis for Westside Baby, and am also a parent-mentor for Code Purple, the Lake Washington High School Robotics team.

    I offer potential clients a free consultation in person or via phone so we can get to know each other and figure out how we can work together to protect the businesses they love.  I can be reached directly at 206-488-3391 or lauren@lburgon.com. http://lburgon.com/
