Lindsey Jump, a trial lawyer with experience working on more than 10 jury trial teams, defends companies in product liability lawsuits and commercial litigation.

Lindsey has been involved in Jones Day's nationwide defense of the Engle progeny smoking and health lawsuits brought against R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. In addition to arguing motions to the court and taking dozens of depositions, Lindsey has coordinated strategy within joint defense groups and has managed cases from the date of filing, through discovery, and up to trial. She also has developed experience in the many other aspects of complex commercial litigation, including conducting legal research, drafting motions and response briefs, and post-trial briefing.

In addition to her trial work, Lindsey worked directly with a hospital client to petition the Ohio Supreme Court for a writ of prohibition, which led to a favorable outcome. She also conducted interviews of a health care client's employees to determine whether they had information relevant to a subpoena.

Lindsey has also argued motions as part of the Firm's pro bono practice, including successfully arguing for a federal immigration judge to set a low bond for a detained client who was at risk of suffering severe injuries from COVID-19. Lindsey also participated in the federal government's Clemency Project by communicating directly with imprisoned clients and drafting petitions asking the president to pardon the clients. Lindsey also serves on the board for Playhouse Square Partners and is a co-chair of its Engagement Committee.
