Meggen Lindsay practices both employment and traditional labor law, representing management in employment-litigation defense, and before the National Labor Relations Board, in collective bargaining negotiations with labor unions, and in labor arbitrations.  She also counsels employers on a variety of workplace matters, including state and federal wage-and-hour laws, the Family Medical Leave Act, and other issues of statutory compliance.

Meggen rejoined the firm in 2015 after clerking on the Minnesota Supreme Court for Justice G. Barry Anderson, Justice David R. Stras, and Justice Wilhelmina M. Wright.

In her first career, Meggen spent a decade as an award-winning print journalist—most recently as a reporter and editor at the St. Paul Pioneer Press.  Meggen now draws from her experience as a seasoned writer, communicator, and investigator in her practice of law.  When representing clients, Meggen brings the strong writing skills and attention to detail that she honed as a journalist, whether in crafting an appellate argument or drafting a new employee handbook.
