Lindsey’s practice focuses on regulatory law, keeping industry clients compliant with ever-changing rules and regulations. She also works with corporations and insurance companies on litigation regarding insurance coverage, product liability, and asbestos defense.

Regulatory law is complex and the ball rolls so much faster. It is challenging, but satisfying to know I have a handle on a moving target.

Regulatory and administrative law is a dynamic field, requiring agile navigation of the rules and regulations imposed by federal agencies including OSHA and FDA, as well as state and local-level agencies. Lindsey monitors the news and regularly attends national conferences, staying up-to-the-minute on the regulatory climate and industry developments. She has a natural facility for transforming complex information into understandable terms, and is often the first to blog about legal developments important to clients.

Lindsey sees cohesion between tenacious investigation, meticulous research, and persuasive writing, driving her to discover and unveil all accessible facts, even when they are difficult to unearth.

I love the deep dive. I use creative searches and new resources to uncover what is there to strengthen my client’s case.

She excels at building a case with early legal analysis and fact development to craft a persuasive argument for prompt resolution of litigation matters. Strategically anticipating arguments, she writes concise, straightforward analyses for her clients. She adeptly organizes vast amounts of information to extrapolate the data necessary to develop case strategy and prepare cohesive legal arguments and motions.

In addition to her practice, Lindsey also manages the firm’s Law Clerk Program, and serves on the Board of Fundraising and Charitable Activities. She is an active in the ABA as a member of the Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice Section and as an editor-member of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Affiliate Blog. Lindsey was recently profiled as a young regulatory law superstar in the “2017 Next Generation Attorney Special Issue” of Attorney at Law.
