Laura M. Groen
Laura Groen applies a unique combination of creative thinking and critical problem-solving when undertaking complex legal analysis for her civil litigation clients.
As a former clerk for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Laura gained invaluable insight into effective writing for the court and honed her pointed legal writing style and oral advocacy skills. Laura embraces the challenge of finding or creating new solutions for old problems. She eagerly pursues innovative advocacy in both state and federal court for clients who span a broad spectrum of industries.
Laura is a dedicated advocate for human rights both inside and outside of Hogan Lovells. She spent four years working with a world relief organization prior to becoming a lawyer. During that time, she experienced the value of providing a voice to the voiceless. She is particularly dedicated to anti-trafficking efforts and engages in pro bono legal work as well as volunteer opportunities dedicated to that important cause.
Laura graduated magna cum laude, Order of the Coif, from Loyola Law School in 2013. She externed both in the Central District for federal Judge R. Gary Klausner and for the Central District United States Attorney's Office. She was a public interest scholar and moot court champion, placing first at Loyola and fourth regionally for her oral advocacy.
After law school, Laura worked for another large international firm in complex civil litigation before accepting a Ninth Circuit clerkship in the chambers of the Honorable Ferdinand F. Fernandez.
