Austin Native and Former Law Firm Attorney Brings Corporate Law Experience to High-End Legal Services Company
AUSTIN, Texas (November 17, 2021) – Lauren Sheinberg has joined Latitude as director of legal recruiting and placement in the company’s Austin office. In this role, she will work with experienced attorneys, paralegals, legal operations professionals and compliance officers in Austin and throughout the country by engaging them in substantive legal work with corporate legal departments and law firms.
Before joining Latitude, Sheinberg was an attorney at Elder Bray & Bankler PC in San Antonio, Texas where she was a member of the corporate law department. In that position, she represented clients in connection with a wide variety of commercial and business transactions. Prior to that she was a member of the corporate law department of Dykema, a leading Am Law 200 national law firm and successor to the San Antonio-based law firm Cox Smith Matthews.
“Lauren is a great addition to our new Latitude Austin team. Her corporate law experience means she understands the high expectations of our clients as well as the substantive work our attorneys and other legal professionals desire,” said Jeff Lilly, Latitude Austin partner. “She’s an Austin native and has spent her entire legal career working in Central Texas, so she has a deep knowledge of the legal market in this area. This is instrumental in helping her connect with candidates seeking more flexible legal careers.”
“Latitude offers numerous options for talented attorneys and other legal professionals seeking more flexibility in their careers. Many are unaware of the alternatives, and I look forward to sharing these opportunities,” Sheinberg said.
Sheinberg earned both her B.B.A. in finance and J.D. at the University of Texas at Austin.
Headquartered in Nashville, Latitude entered Austin in August 2021 under the leadership of Lilly, a former partner at Am Law 100 firm Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani, where he co-managed the Austin office.
