Lindsay is a member of the firm's Multifamily and Commercial Real Estate Finance practice group, focusing her practice on closing and delivering loans secured by multifamily projects to secondary market investors like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. As part of this practice, she prepares and negotiates loan documents, reviews legal opinions, examines title, survey, and other due diligence, and works with all transaction parties to ensure a smooth closing.
Lindsay’s practice ranges from closing $1,000,000 supplemental loans to $100,000,000+ acquisition loans. She has experience with unique deal components such as affordable housing restrictions, condominiums, HOAs, mixed-use developments, and lease-up and value-add properties. Lindsay structures transactions to meet the needs of sophisticated borrower structures involving joint ventures, tenancies-in-common, 1031 exchanges, and foreign guarantors while offering explanation and guidance to transaction participants.
Prior to joining Moss & Barnett, Lindsay practiced in the area of public finance, providing counsel on municipal bond and tax increment financing transactions. Prior to that, Lindsay was with Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership, a developer of low income single-family and multifamily housing in rural Minnesota. She started her career as a law clerk for District Court Judge Gordon Moore in Nobles County, Minnesota.
Lindsay earned her Juris Doctorate from the University of St. Thomas School of Law. Before attending law school, Lindsay attended Minnesota State University, Mankato, where she received her B.S. degree, graduating cum laude.
