Lindsay Todd Perkins

Kansas City - Of Counsel | 816-714-7143 (Direct) |

Lindsay Todd Perkins focuses her practice on legal writing and researching. Recognized as a “Rising Star” by Missouri/Kansas Super Lawyers, she develops strategies and arguments for briefings to the court; interprets laws, rulings and regulations; and drafts complaints, memoranda, and appellate briefs.

In one recent matter, Larson v. John Hancock Life Insurance Company, Lindsay drafted the class certification briefing in a case alleging the defendant life insurance company improperly charged its policyholders excessive fees for the cost of insurance. The California state courtultimately certified a nationwide class. The lawsuit settled soon thereafter for $59,750,000.

Lindsay also took primary drafting responsibility for the appeal in a class action matter, Bezich v. The Lincoln National Life Insurance Co. She successfully defended the certification of the class of plaintiffs who alleged inappropriate fees and charges on their life insurance policies. The lawsuit ultimately resolved with a settlement valued at approximately $171.8 million.

Lindsay honed her legal writing and analysis during two clerkships after law school; she served as a law clerk for Judge Duane Benton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and Judge Ortrie Smith of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri. She credits this experience with building her understanding of the inner-workings of the court and the most persuasive arguments.

Prior to joining Stueve Siegel Hanson, she practiced commercial and employment litigation at Spencer Fane LLP.
