Biography

Overview

Lindsay Heck is an associate in the 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.

Lindsay has had significant trial and hearing experience, both in federal and state courts. She has handled cross-border multijurisdictional disputes where huge sums were at stake. Lindsay has been involved in a number of high profile cases, including litigation arising from the collapse of Enron. She also has experience representing clients in connection with large-scale government investigations relating to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. 

In addition to her commercial litigation activities, Lindsay has developed an extensive pro bono practice, representing the parents of thousands of schoolchildren in high-poverty, underfunded school districts and victims of human trafficking. Notably, Lindsay has led the team from White & Case LLP on a groundbreaking class action lawsuit brought on behalf of the approximately 30,000 children in Flint, Michigan poisoned by lead in the water during the infamous water crisis. To date, the lawsuit has resulted in the creation of a new $4 million medical center in Flint offering state-of-the-art testing calibrated to detect lead's impact. The innovative legal strategy has been recognized by the Financial Times, and Lindsay has appeared on MSNBC to discuss how the precedent-setting case can be used as a model in other cities across the country that have been impacted by lead. She also was quoted in a front page article in the New York Times.
