Bradley J. Lingo is a partner in our Business Litigation practice. His work encompasses an array of trial and appellate matters, but in recent years much of it has focused on defending accounting firms against claims of malpractice and securities fraud. Brad has represented three of the Big Four accounting firms in cases where plaintiffs sought damages in excess of $1 billion, two of which went to trial.
Recently, Brad was one of the trial lawyers who defended a Big Four accounting firm against a $1.2 billion malpractice lawsuit brought by the Florida Department of Financial Services as the receiver of three Florida insurance companies. King & Spalding’s client obtained a complete defense verdict following a six-week jury trial.
Accounts of pro bono work spearheaded by Brad have appeared on the front pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal. He also serves, by appointment of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, on the Commission’s North Carolina Advisory Committee, and he is the President of the Federalist Society’s Charlotte Lawyers Chapter.
Prior to joining King & Spalding, Brad practiced in the Washington, D.C., office of Gibson Dunn and served as a law clerk to the Hon. Morris Sheppard Arnold of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. While attending Harvard Law School, he served as Executive Editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy. He graduated first in his class and summa cum laude from Grove City College. While there, he was awarded the Calderwood Scholarship, which goes to the two rising seniors demonstrating outstanding scholarship, leadership, and service.
