After his father's death in 1360 or 1361, he initially ruled Werle-Gustrow alone. After 21 September 1365, he ruled jointly with his brother John V of Werle, as can be inferred from a deed they signed jointly on that date.[citation needed]

John died young, before 9 September 1378. From that date onwards, documents were again signed by Lorenz alone. Lorenz last signed a deed on 24 February 1393.


He was married to Matilda (died before 17 December 1402), the daughter of Nicholas IV, Lord of Werle-Goldberg. They had the following children:
