Lindsay Brown handles complex, high-profile litigation for clients involved in environmental and commercial disputes. Ms. Brown has a wide range of experience from representing major petroleum and chemical companies in billion-dollar litigations to efficiently resolving matters without the need for litigation. Her roster of clients have included major corporations such as Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Sunoco, Inc., Exxon Mobil Corporation, Conrail, Inc., LUKOIL, Aramark Corporation and other public and private companies.

As an experienced environmental practitioner, Ms. Brown handles everything from environmental contamination cases and toxic tort claims to advising clients with respect to agency investigations, regulatory compliance, management of environmental liabilities, remediation of contaminated sites and the purchase and sale of property with environmental liabilities. She is the firm’s go-to attorney for matters involving per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (known as PFAS).

Ms. Brown also has significant experience handling commercial litigation matters, including defending class action claims, complex contractual disputes and high-stakes injunction claims. More recently, Ms. Brown has honed her litigation and trial strategy skills by managing the nationwide litigation docket for one of the firm’s largest clients. She has developed a keen awareness for balancing legal and business considerations and advising clients on ways to avoid litigation, manage risk and, most importantly, manage the “bottom line.”
