    Lindsey Conrad Kennedy

    Lindsey Conrad Kennedy helps employers navigate the labor and employment laws governing their relationships with their workforce. Whether she is counseling multi-state employers on leave of absence management, litigating a restrictive covenant case seeking emergency relief, investigating an internal #metoo complaint, or negotiating an executive employment agreement, Lindsey takes a proactive, business-minded approach to addressing these and other complex problems. Her experience includes both counseling and litigation under the major federal and state laws governing employment relationships. In addition to employment-related matters, she has also represented management in traditional labor matters.

    Lindsey has practiced in both New York and Pennsylvania, representing a variety of employers in a variety of industries—from one of the world’s largest insurance brokers to a boutique spa. She regularly defends employers in court and agency proceedings but appreciates the need to avoid litigation before it arises and, where appropriate, to resolve disputes without costly court intervention.
