Lindsay’s practice involves advocacy, advice and drafting, predominately in public law matters, across a broad cross-section of chambers’ specialisms. What unites a majority of Lindsay’s areas of practice is the need for accommodation, whether through the housing legislation, for children, for those in need of community care services, or otherwise. He has appeared in a number of cases in the higher courts on housing matters, community care issues and matters relating to corporate governance and also has experience in relation to ‘best interests’ litigation, property law, commercial landlord and tenant and leasehold enfranchisement. By necessity, each of these specific practice areas, requires consideration of principles of human rights, equality and discrimination and capacity. He is recognised as a leading junior in housing in Chambers & Partners 2012.
Lindsay embarked on an academic career before joining chambers, undertaking post graduate research first at Kings College London and subsequently at the University of Nottingham. Whilst studying, he lectured law at undergraduate level (both Land law and European law).
