2018 40 Under 40: Lindsey Lund, 35

Attorney and partner, Husch Blackwell LLP

Posted online

Attorney Lindsey Lund made short work of becoming partner. Four years into joining Husch Blackwell LLP, Lund reached her milestone goal this year. As a transactional real estate attorney, she brought with her national clientele. Work includes a multibillion-dollar outdoor sporting goods retailer’s anchor tenant leases and an industrial real estate investment trust’s recent $189 million acquisition of six properties. Lund serves in Husch Blackwell’s executive recruiting and in-house Retail Industry Institute, as well as a key role of liaison between associates and partners. She also completed the Husch Blackwell University, a professional development program in partnership with Washington University in St. Louis.

When did you realize you had grown up? I went straight from high school to college, and from college to law school. I started my first real, full-time job in the fall after law school graduation. So the first time Christmas came around and there was no extended winter break, I felt like an adult with a career for the first time.

What was your professional aha moment? When a senior partner walked into my office to brainstorm on a particular matter, and I realized that I actually already knew the answer.

What do you miss most about the 1990s?  Keyrock, the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer.
 
What about your job would shock clients?
I hate billing them in six-minute increments as much as – or more than – they hate it.
