“Best known for her appearances in the media, including on the BBC’s The Apprentice, solicitor Lauren Riley embodies the spirit of today’s modern professional woman”

Lauren is an entrepreneur, qualified solicitor, and the proud founder of The Link App. Ever since she began studying law, Lauren has been determined to give law a ‘facelift’ and is a firm believer that today’s leading firms can retain their traditional values while embracing innovation.

After graduating with an honours degree in Law from Lancaster University in 2006, Lauren concluded her post-graduate diploma in law with distinction.

Specialising in family law, taking on cases such as separation, divorce, or property ownership, Lauren was driven to ensure she could make a difference for those in need of support.

Her appearance on the BBC’s The Apprentice in 2014 was an opportunity not only to get backing for her innovative business idea, The Link App, but also the perfect way to show that women can earn their place in the boardroom without losing their femininity.

Concerned with the amount of time and effort solicitors put into simply keeping all client parties up to speed with case progression, Lauren took charge and created The Link App. Designed with a user-friendly interface, a lawyer can upload the latest developments and documents on a case to the app and their clients can easily access all the information. With this technology, Lauren is redefining and improving the relationship between law firms and their clients.

Lauren continues to make appearances in the legal media covering topics of innovation, and how to improve client experience. Lauren represents the belief that women can have it all – a successful career without compromising the things they hold dear. Lauren is also a prominent blogger and shares her content via Huffington Post and her own site. Lauren shares her life, tips for success, experience in business and the things she loves outside of work on her blog and her YouTube channel.”
