Lauren Champaign Featured Among ABA Members Who Inspire

01 October 2022 ABA Journal News

Foley & Lardner LLP Senior Counsel Lauren Champaign is featured in the ABA Journal article, “Lauren Champaign has Big Goals for Big Law,” as part of its “Members Who Inspire” series that profiles members doing unique and important work.

The article describes Champaign’s upbringing and background that led to her motivation to become a lawyer and help her community. Today, Champaign’s practice focuses on commercial litigation and counseling clients in the areas of securities litigation, product liability defense, antitrust, and consumer finance matters, though her “desire to help her community and eradicate institutional racism remains central to her practice.”

Following the nationwide outrage over violence against Black Americans in 2020, Champaign and her colleagues proposed an action plan for Foley to address racial injustice and inequality that led to the firm’s formation of the Racial Justice and Equity Practice Group, now the firm’s largest pro bono group.

“What I’ve found most impactful about this group is it gives a space,” Champaign said. “It’s not like we created this group and suddenly Foley was doing all this work. There were already things going on. But now we have this great national structure where we can combine all the work we’re doing, new and old.”

The plan also emphasized charitable works, which led to Foley’s successful national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Champaign also pursues her passion for civil rights by handling pro bono cases and volunteering in her community.
