Taft is pleased to announce that Gillian Lindsay and Elizabeth Butler have joined the Chicago office as partners in the Litigation and Real Estate practice groups.
Lindsay represents clients ranging from closely held businesses to Fortune 100 companies across various industries and throughout every phase of commercial litigation. In her practice, she handles complex disputes involving breach of contract, consumer and business torts, trade secrets, labor and employment disputes, commercial and equipment loan enforcement, judgment enforcement and collection, and trademark infringement. Lindsay’s litigation practice includes a focus on biometric privacy issues, specifically relating to the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). She navigates emerging compliance issues and counsels clients on insurance coverage and claims options.
Butler concentrates her practice in the areas of land use, zoning, entitlements, urban planning, public incentives, historic preservation, and economic development, as well as general real estate transactions. She advises owners and developers of institutional, residential, commercial, and industrial property in acquisitions, dispositions, zoning entitlements, and economic development incentives. Butler counsels private sector clients in their interactions with the City of Chicago and suburban municipalities, working to build consensus between neighboring property owners, government representatives, and community stakeholders.
