Prior to joining SKO, Lindsey spent two years in private practice at another law firm, where she successfully represented a bonding company facing multi-million dollar breach of contract and quantum meruit claims before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals; obtained summary judgment in numerous insurance coverage disputes and breach of contract actions; and achieved significant settlements on behalf of clients in various other disputes. While in law school, she interned for the Honorable John G. Heyburn II in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky.
Business Litigation: As a general civil litigator, I work with clients in many industries, but have significant experience handling legal issues particularly pertinent to businesses, including concerns regarding corporate governance, complex insurance coverage and bad faith disputes, shareholder litigation and commercial tort defense.
Environmental: My experience in environmental law includes participation in complex environmental litigation involving state and federal regulations, contractual indemnity claims, and environmental risk and cost allocation, therefore demanding a comprehensive spectrum of services.
Litigation, though generally thought of as the process of resolving rights-based disputes through the court system, is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace, with only a small percentage of litigated cases proceeding to trial. As a result, a successful lawyer must master skills associated with various types of conflict resolution including negotiation, mediation, settlement and arbitration. Whether through early case assessment, aggressive motion practice, focused discovery, alternative dispute resolution or, when it serves our clients’ objectives, trial and appeal, litigators must strive to craft a personalized approach to addressing each client’s unique needs.
