I’M LAUREN RUIZ
I’m a lawyer with a passion for local business and entrepreneurship. Through speaking engagements and as a mentor at The Foundress, I love connecting with and inspiring business owners of all industries.
I’m a proud Arizona native who loves a good barre class, cooking with local ingredients from the farmers market, and listening to podcasts.
I believe that every small business should have opportunities to make their dreams a reality through careful planning from establishing the rights and expectations of the founders upfront to mitigating the risks inherent in business relationships or transactions with third parties.
I LOOK FORWARD TO GUIDING YOUR BUSINESS TO NEW HEIGHTS AND WATCHING YOU GROW ALONG THE WAY!
I grew up in a family where an entrepreneurial spirit was always encouraged.
My family stayed at it day and night to create the businesses of their dreams and I was fortunate enough to witness every minute of their hard work.
I was determined to do the same, which led me to earn dual degrees in Finance and Entrepreneurship, followed by a law degree from the University of Arizona (I’m a Wildcat through and through!).
After several successful years drafting and negotiating multi-million dollar commercial contracts for a global corporation, I realized the current model for legal services was not serving the needs of small business in our community.
This led me to create Guide My Business, a place where I can provide a proactive and comprehensive approach to legal services with monthly legal counsel and flat rate services to address the needs of businesses as they grow.
