Lindsay: A Global Legal Mind with a Local Touch

Early Education and International Exposure

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Lindsay embarked on her educational journey at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, where she pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. What set her college experience apart was her specialization in International Business, which opened the doors to diverse global experiences. Lindsay’s passion for understanding global markets and legal systems propelled her to study and work across various cultures and countries, including Spain, Italy, Mexico, and China. This international exposure not only broadened her worldview but also instilled in her a deep appreciation for diverse legal practices and business strategies.

Legal Education and Specialization

Continuing her academic pursuit, Lindsay attended DePaul University College of Law in Chicago. It was here that her foundation in law was solidified, specializing in corporate law with an eye towards international business relations. Her time at DePaul was marked by rigorous academic discipline, participation in law moot courts, and internships that provided practical exposure to the complexities of international law and business.

Professional Milestones

Upon completing her law degree, Lindsay’s exceptional skills did not go unnoticed. She was recruited by a mid-sized law firm in Chicago, where she carved a niche for herself by representing large corporations. Notably, her clientele included industry giants such as United Airlines and Wal-Mart, where she honed her skills in corporate law, successfully navigating complex legal challenges and litigation. Lindsay’s tenure at the firm was marked by a series of successful representations, underlining her growing reputation as a formidable lawyer with a knack for understanding the intricacies of corporate operations and legal requirements.


The landscape of legal services began to shift in the Spring of 2020, influenced by global changes and a growing demand for more personalized legal solutions. Recognizing this trend, Lindsay envisioned a boutique law firm that would not only offer top-tier legal expertise but also prioritize a personal touch in client relationships. Thus, RENIER HOTOPP LAW was born, embodying Lindsay’s philosophy of blending high-quality legal services with a family-like approach to client interactions. The firm quickly distinguished itself, becoming synonymous with trust, reliability, and bespoke legal solutions.

Outside the rigorous demands of her profession, Lindsay cherishes the time spent with her family. Married to Kenny, she is a stepmother to Wes and Josie and a loving owner to Barry, their Goldendoodle. The family shares a passion for exploring new cuisines and embarking on international travels, a testament to Lindsay and Kenny’s efforts to instill a sense of adventure and cultural appreciation in Wes and Josie. Together, they’re on a mission to explore the world, one country at a time, gathering unique experiences and making lasting memories.
