Employing a "practical litigation" approach, Glen focuses on trying to resolve his client's issue before litigation. However, if those efforts fail, Glen is prepared to go the distance for you, having litigated 1000s of matters to final disposition.

Born in Houston, Texas, Glen M. Lindsay earned his B.S. in Communication Studies and Philosophy from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where he was a four-year recipient of the Thomas J. Watson Memorial Scholarship and a joint JD/MBA (Finance) from the University of Miami where he was a Graduate Assistant to Prof. Ann M. Olazabal, Esq. researching issues related to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act.

Glen’s practice concentrates primarily on business, regulatory and real estate litigation with an emphasis on matters involving fraud and/or deceptive business practices as well as matters at the intersection of commercial litigation and government regulatory compliance.

In 2019, Glen secured an order of dismissal in federal court in a matter of first impression successfully arguing that when attempting to secure a maritime lien on a vessel designated as a "blocked asset" by the Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC"), the party seeking imposition of the maritime lien must obtain licensure from OFAC prior to bringing an admiralty action. Versilia Supply Service SRL et al. v. M/Y Waku, 0:18-cv-62975-Cohn/Seltzer (Apr. 16, 2019).

Prior to joining Saavedra Goodwin in 2016, Glen was an attorney with two NLJ 350 law firms where he represented numerous Fortune 500 companies focusing primarily on consumer finance and federal regulatory compliance matters.

Glen has an AV rating from Martindale Hubbell and was selected as a Rising Star for 2018, 2019, and 2020 by Florida Super Lawyers, a distinction earned by only 2.5% of lawyers. Glen is a member of the Broward County and American Bar associations.

Glen is admitted to the bar in Florida, the U.S. District Courts for the Southern, Middle and Northern Districts of Florida, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

Clown of Mr. Lindsay
Mr. Lindsay fought hard for us and we received a lump sum settlement ... the best part is that he was able to make the other side pay his fees!!
