Lauren Riley is the proud Founder of The Link App. In 2013, as a qualified family law solicitor, she could see the day-to-day problems faced by law firms and their clients alike and set about looking to solve these issues. From this thinking, The Link App was born.
As an entrepreneur, she also draws on her strong business background, with a keen focus on providing excellent customer service, in order to make The Link App what it is. Ultimately, for Lauren, success through achieving her goals is everything. She engages this mindset at all times, whether perfecting our product, working with law firms to achieve the biggest impact on rollout, or being dedicated to her passions outside of the office: fitness, blogging and travel.
Lauren applies the same ethos to all that she does: “It’s only worth doing if it can be done well”.
