Lauren N. Tuckey is proud to lead the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois, one of the oldest, largest women’s bar associations in the country. The theme of the bar year is “lifting while climbing” – providing women the opportunity to support each other while sharpening leadership skills, protecting the interests of women and women lawyers, and aiding in the enactment of legislation for the common good. Our new Board of Directors represents the best of our profession. Our leadership is hard-working, collaborative and puts mission over self. 

Lauren is an experienced and aggressive corporate litigator at BatesCarey LLP, handling some of the firm’s most complex insurance coverage and subrogation disputes in courts across the country.  Lauren’s caseload involves litigation of product liability matters, as well as railroad liability, construction accidents and a variety of contract disputes.  Lauren has successfully litigated multi-million dollar commercial and tort cases, including a favorable defense verdict in the Cook County case ofRizner v. The Weitz Company, et al., where the jury found the plaintiff 40% at fault for his own injuries due to his failure to wear fall protection. 

Outside of the courtroom Lauren serves as Secretary of the Illinois Bar Foundation, and a pro bono Guardian Ad Litem for Chicago Volunteer Legal Services. She enjoys adoption counseling at PAWS Adoption Center, where she adopted her street dog Keller. Lauren is an avid “foodie.” She graduated culinary school at Kendall College’s certificate program and is a Level One Sommelier.

Lauren’s exceptional insurance work and involvement in various legal organizations has led to her recognition as a Rising Star in Illinois by Super Lawyers.

“I love getting to know women in the legal community outside of my practice area. The WBAI has been such a wonderful foundation for many friendships, key mentors, and connections over the past several years, and I’m proud of the work we do to promote women in the practice of law.”
