Lauren L. Paysse, Associate
Lauren Paysse’s practice focuses on the defense of employers and insurance carriers for claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, Defense Base Act, and War Hazards Compensation Act.
Prior to joining Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett, Lauren was highly involved in student activities at Vanderbilt Law School. She served on the board of the Women Law Students’ Association and was a member of the International Law Society and the Legal Aid Society. She also worked as a student practitioner in the Stanton Foundation First Amendment Clinic, where she learned that effective client communications are key to being the best advocate throughout the litigation process.
Among her most rewarding experiences were participating in the International Law Practice Lab, where she drafted petitions to the United Nations Human Rights Committee on behalf of citizens in Kazakhstan who were imprisoned for speaking out against the governing regime, and interning for the U.S. Department of Commerce Office of the Chief Counsel for Industry and Security.
“My educational background as an International Politics major combined with my experience working with foreign nationals has given me a unique set of skills that I am able to leverage for my Defense Base Act clients.”
Lauren is a native of New Orleans. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, reading, spending time with friends and family, and cheering for the New Orleans Saints.
