Tim Lindsay is a life-long Mississippian with personal and professional ties across the state. Tim has a keen interest in the economic growth and development of his native state which he believes directly coincides with the success of businesses operating in Mississippi and the stability of the state’s workforce.

Tim is routinely sought by clients to provide legal advice and offer guidance in avoiding potential problems and costly litigation in the labor and employment arena. In litigation, Tim has defended employers against claims involving state and federal employment laws with a high success rate for over 30 years. To Tim, representing management in labor and employment disputes is more than a professional career choice, it is a personal passion to which his practice has been dedicated for years.

Tim also is frequently asked to speak on current and developing employment law issues at seminars and industry sponsored events. His ability to relate to any audience gives practical application to the complex legalities of the modern day employment relationship.


Tim has practiced exclusively in the field of labor and employment law on behalf of management since 1987. He has been retained by clients to serve in a number of capacities including consultation with respect to day-to-day personnel issues, supervisor training, handbook drafting and review, EEO audits, wage and hour investigations, union campaigns, and negotiation of collective bargaining agreements.

With over 30 years of litigation experience, Tim has served as lead counsel for public and private sector employers in defense of civil actions involving Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, ERISA, the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, and various employment related claims under state law such as wrongful discharge, defamation/slander, infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and breach of contract. Tim is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts of Mississippi, the Tribal Court for the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, and the United States District Courts for the Western District of Tennessee, and Middle District of Louisiana.

In addition to defending civil actions in court, Tim frequently represents management’s interests before various state and federal administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, National Labor Relations Board, Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission and Mississippi Department of Employment Security.
