In addition, Lindsay frequently acts for individuals and corporations in other administrative proceedings, such as OHIP coverage disputes, academic disputes and applications for judicial review, to name a few.

Lindsay’s practice also focuses on defamation proceedings. She frequently advises clients on issues regarding defamation, and represents both plaintiffs and defendants in libel and/or slander cases.
