White & Case associate Lindsay Heck (New York) was named an Empire State Counsel honoree for Extraordinary Pro Bono Service by the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) President's Committee on Access to Justice on January 30 at the 2020 NYSBA Annual Meeting. Heck was one of only two lawyers in New York State, out of the many who earn the Committee's "Empire State Counsel®" designation by performing 50 hours of pro bono service, to be so honored.
Heck was singled out for helping White & Case to build "an extensive pro bono practice that includes representing the parents of schoolchildren in high-poverty, underfunded school districts and victims of human trafficking," and for helping to lead "the team from White & Case on a groundbreaking class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of the approximately 30,000 children in Flint, Michigan, who were poisoned by lead in the water during the city's infamous water crisis," according to NYSBA.
Heck is an associate in White & Case's Commercial Litigation Practice Group. Her practice focuses on complex commercial disputes, representing major domestic and international corporations across a range of industries, including securities, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, technology, and healthcare.
