Pittsburgh Senior Attorney Lindsay Sherwood Fouse-Hopkins was named as one of the American Bar Association’s “On the Rise – Top 40 Young Lawyers.”

The On The Rise Award program provides national recognition for ABA young lawyers who exemplify a broad range of high achievement, innovation, vision, leadership, and legal and community service.

“I’m honored to be recognized among so many accomplished attorneys,” Fouse-Hopkins said. “And I’m endlessly thankful to my colleagues and friends at Clark Hill who have helped me develop my career and have empowered me to give back in meaningful ways.”

In her practice, Fouse-Hopkins represents companies in complex commercial litigation in the areas of contracts, commercial real estate, and corporate compliance. She also counsels multinational generic pharmaceutical manufacturers, healthcare and technology companies through internal investigations, white collar criminal and civil litigation, and antitrust proceedings.

She is a member of Clark Hill’s Commercial Real Estate Industry Team and was elected by her peers to the firm’s Leadership Forum. She is a member of the firm’s Recruiting Committee, co-chairs the summer associate program and participates in BOLD as an office co-chair. BOLD promotes the professional growth of women in the firm, the legal industry, and the global business community. She initiated and leads the Pittsburgh office’s pro bono Name Change Project, providing free legal name change services to low-income transgender individuals. Since 2017, Fouse-Hopkins has been appointed to serve three terms as a Senior Member of the Hearing Committee for the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

Outside of law, Fouse-Hopkins serves as a board member of the Edgeworth Club in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, and The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center, a film-based arts organization created to strengthen cultural, educational, and entertainment experiences in western Pennsylvania. She is also an active Board of Trustee member of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Fouse-Hopkins and the other honorees will be formally recognized on Aug. 2 at the ABA’s annual meeting.
