About Lauren Aronson
Nationally recognized for her expertise in advertising and marketing law, Lauren Aronson is frequently called upon by market leading companies in a broad spectrum of industries when disputes arise. She initiates and defends false advertising challenges before the National Advertising Division (NAD) and Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (DSSRC) and represents clients in Lanham Act false advertising litigation. Clients also turn to Lauren to handle high-stakes regulatory defense matters relating to marketing and sales practices brought by the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general.
Lauren regularly guides clients through the development, substantiation, approval and defense of advertising claims in product categories ranging from food, cosmetics and dietary supplements to household products like superglue, drones, and trash bags.

In Lauren’s broader practice, she advises clients on evolving compliance challenges relating to social media, native advertising, testimonials and endorsements, consumer reviews, warranties, rebates, environmental marketing claims and sustainability, sweepstakes and promotions law, automatic renewals, pricing, and other advertising and marketing-related concerns.
