For over two decades Alvin Lindsay has tried complex commercial disputes in federal and state courts, as well as domestic and international arbitration proceedings.
He focuses on large-scale construction arbitration and product liability disputes, but has worked on a wide variety of business litigation including some of the most important lawsuits in recent times.
He has handled multiple $100 million construction claims involving power and petrochemical plants, major securities actions against Fortune 500 companies, numerous product liability cases ranging from those involving medical devices to aircraft disasters, and actions involving virtually every variety of business tort and fraud. At his previous firm, he successfully represented Florida’s Secretary of State in the year-2000 election litigation from the trial level to the United States Supreme Court. As lead counsel, Mr. Lindsay has tried many cases through bench or jury verdict and to final appeal, and he recently tried five arbitration disputes to favorable final decision in both the United States and abroad.
As co-chair of the firm's Electronic Information Group and a thought leader in the field of electronic discovery, Mr. Lindsay understands that electronic discovery issues are often a critical and costly component of domestic and international litigation. The Associated Press called him "an expert in technology and litigation," and The Wall Street Journal relied on Mr. Lindsay to explain the revisions to the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure to encompass electronic evidence.
He is chair of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) advisory board, and is on the faculty of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA), where he has taught the prestigious National Trial Skills Session in Colorado as well as the Deposition Skills program in New York and Washington, D.C. For the past decade, he has taught litigation skills at the University of Miami School of Law, and he regularly teaches arbitration at various Florida law schools.
He authored the book and DVD titled Technology in Litigation, and wrote the Florida chapters of the treatises Products Liability Desk Reference and Business Torts, both published by Aspen. He has written articles published in Inside Counsel, The National Law Journal, Legal Times, the University of Miami Law Review, and the International Law Quarterly, for which he is editor-in-chief.
