Lindsay Joyner is a partner in GWB’s Columbia office.  Her practice places an emphasis on financial institution, business and commercial, professional negligence, and trust litigation. Lindsay has presented matters in these practice areas before both state and federal courts.

A significant portion of Joyner’s legal practice is devoted to lender liability. She handles a wide variety of financial institution issues, including advising bankers on policy and customer issues that arise as well as litigating matters from an offensive and defensive perspective.

Additionally, Lindsay represents corporate and individual clients in business and commercial litigation matters. She regularly handles matters concerning contractual disputes, business torts, shareholder disputes, and other complex litigation arising out of business transactions. Lindsay used the experience gained from representing clients in these areas to co-author the ABOTA Masters in Trial.  Masters in Trial puts the best lawyers in the state in front of an audience to try a case.  Lindsay’s case was the first commercial case ever used by Masters in Trial.

Lindsay appreciates that client service is equally as important as legal skills and knowledge. As a result, Lindsay makes client expectations and satisfaction a central point of her practice. She takes great effort to be accommodating and communicative with her clients at all times.
