Lindsey’s practice focuses on the defense of corporations in product liability and consumer protection matters. She believes that the best way to protect her clients’ business interests is to employ both offensive and defensive strategies. Thus, in addition to her litigation experience, Lindsey helps her clients assess and manage the inherent risks of business to minimize future litigation threats.
Lindsey has litigated both individual and complex tort cases in state and federal courts throughout the country. She has experience in all stages of litigation, including case strategy and development, depositions, expert witness preparation, motion practice and trial. She also defends corporations facing class action claims, particularly those involving allegations of false and misleading marketing, and she has successfully defended her clients against class certification.
Lindsey also draws on her litigation experience to anticipate legal issues that her clients may face before a complaint is filed. She is uniquely familiar with the day-to-day business issues faced by her clients, including the complicated business decisions that precede the manufacture, marketing and sale of a product. As an attorney, Lindsey was seconded with a Fortune 500 company, and prior to law school, she worked as an account executive for an advertising agency. These experiences, coupled with her litigation work, have enabled Lindsey to identify potential liabilities in marketing strategies before they are implemented. Lindsey also advises her clients on regulatory and compliance issues related to consumer product marketing.
