About Us

Lauren Wynns is the founder and President of Winning Forces.  She is a competent, personable professional with a vast network of mentors, friends and colleagues.  Lauren is a former attorney; she specialized in large transactions, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance.  Her time as an attorney honed her analytical skill set and experience with complex organizational issues.  She founded Winning Forces on the notion that a legal skillset is underutilized in a business and organizational context.  WF deploys research and analytical skills to its client solutions by collecting facts, data and information and assessing risks and exposure points before crafting a solution.  

Lauren holds a B.S., magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University and a J.D., magna cum laude from George Mason Law School, where she simultaneously worked full time as a government consultant.

Lauren gives back to the communities of which she is a part. Her passion is for animals and conservation.  Lauren is V.P. of the Board of the Salvation Army (Detroit Echelon); she is on the Board of the Project Paradise Film Fund (Palm Beach, FL) and actively participates in and supports pet rescue initiatives.
