Lauren M. Zink Of Counsel




Lauren Zink concentrates her practice in the areas of general liability, personal injury, property loss and New York Labor Law. Her primary clients consist of insurance carriers, municipal entities, property owners, property management companies and construction companies. Lauren is a member of Wilson Elser’s National Trial Team and has achieved certification in the firm’s rigorous National Mock Trial Program, through which our most successful trial lawyers impart their knowledge to those destined to join their ranks.

Lauren has handled dozens of Labor Law cases, most of which have involved alleged violations of Labor Law §§ 240(1), 241(6) and 200. With regard to claims that primarily relied on an alleged violation of Labor Law § 240(1), she has defended cases involving falls from ladders/scaffolding, falls into improperly guarded trenches/excavations and cases where the plaintiff alleges to have been struck by an improperly secured object that fell from a higher elevation. The Labor Law § 241(6) claims Lauren has defended have been premised on alleged violations of various Industrial Code provisions, ranging from inadequate safety devices, to insufficient illumination, to slipping/tripping hazards on various types of job sites.

Prior to joining Wilson Elser, Lauren worked at a New York City medical malpractice defense firm serving doctors, hospitals and other health care providers, and before that, at an insurance defense firm focusing on Labor Law and general liability cases.
