Small and large employers turn to Lindsay Hesketh to dig into the details of their matters, determine the real issues, and work toward realistic resolutions that make sense for each individual business’s needs.

Lindsay helps employers protect their employees, confidential information, and company values both proactively and through litigation. She advises companies on how to keep their policies in conformance with current federal, state, and local laws and pursues litigation strategically. No matter the stage of the dispute, Lindsay is committed to helping clients work through difficult workplace issues, including discipline, separations, and serious allegations of misconduct.

Lindsay’s community involvement reflects her passion for promoting diversity and inclusion within educational and professional settings. To that end, she regularly conducts screening interviews for Judicial Intern Opportunity Program applicants and participates in panels and discussions about diversity in the legal profession. Before joining Sherman & Howard, Lindsay interned for the Honorable Raner C. Collins at the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona and for the Honorable Maurice Portley (ret.) at the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Lindsay’s practice includes advising clients on federal, state, and local employment laws.  Upon admission to the California bar, Lindsay looks forward to becoming more active and involved with clients’ workplace issues specific to California law.
