Lindsay has twenty years of experience representing business clients in a wide variety of bankruptcy, consumer finance, and other commercial matters and disputes.  She spent the first six years of her career as an associate in the bankruptcy and creditors' rights practice group of Hunton & Williams LLP and later served as Assistant General Counsel for that firm.

Lindsay has been an associate with The Law Firm of Russell R. Johnson III, PLC for ten years.  She currently represents primarily utilities and other energy companies in commercial and consumer bankruptcy proceedings throughout the United States in connection with issues ranging from obtaining post-petition adequate assurance of payment, preference and other avoidance proceedings, automatic stay violation claims, prepetition and administrative claims, assumption and rejection of contracts, plan objections, and forward contract issues.  In addition, she regularly counsels clients regarding credit and bankruptcy policies and best practices and other bankruptcy-related matters.

Lindsay has developed a particular expertise in defending avoidance actions and has played an instrumental role in the firm’s successful defense of utility clients, both at the bankruptcy court level and throughout appeals at the district court and circuit court levels, in complex preference and fraudulent conveyance actions involving three-party payment arrangements.  See LGI Data Solutions Co., LLC v.
