Meeting Unique Needs

Lynn has served in mass claims resolution for over 30 years, advising management, trustees, claims administrators and corporations on the successful implementation and administration of resolution plans. She began specializing in this area of the law in 1990, when she joined the in-house legal department of Dalkon Shield Claimants Trust, an entity created pursuant to the A.H. Robins bankruptcy to process claims of women injured by the Dalkon Shield intrauterine device. Lynn became the Manager of the Trust’s legal department and ultimately rose to General Counsel and Executive Director, developing and implementing policies and processes that handle these deeply personal injury claims with accuracy and sensitivity, while achieving finality.  The finite fund set aside to pay the claims was managed so successfully, that the Trust made four additional pro rata payments to women as claims were processed and concluded.

Since the Trust’s closure in 2000, Lynn has focused her professional career on meeting the unique needs of clients or Courts involved in or faced with multiple claims or lawsuits. Recognizing the need to bring order to the chaos that arises when numerous claims are filed against a defendant, she and Orran Brown founded BrownGreer PLC in 2002 to provide different and innovative solutions for managing such situations. Since then, BrownGreer has been involved in some of the largest and most complex claims resolution programs in history, processing over 4.3 million claims filed by nearly 40,000,000 class members and paying over $34 billion to qualified claimants.

“The pride we take in our work — the communication, the attention to detail— continues to be what sets us apart. We work every day to be better than the day before.”

Lynn has been appointed by Courts to serve as Special Master, Claims Administrator and other leadership positions in national settlement programs such as the Chinese Drywall class action litigation and the BP Oil Spill program as it transitioned from an emergency fund to a certified class action settlement.  She has also acted as the head of the Project Management Office for a major client defending a pharmaceutical action and has served as a consultant in an international matter opining on the feasibility of a claims administration program.  

In each of BrownGreer’s  engagements, Lynn lends her expertise and is a hands-on participant, working with and serving all of the program’s constituents and ensuring its successful development, administration and conclusion. Her unique combination of legal, administrative, communication, leadership, and personal skills render her equally comfortable presenting to a supervisory Federal District Court, reporting to executive management at a Fortune 500 company, facilitating and leading a conference call among the parties to a settlement agreement, speaking with claimants, mentoring her internal team members, participating in panel discussions on claims administration best practices, or working behind the scenes to draft protocols or process flows. Her sole focus on multiple claims resolution for almost three-decades, as well as her vast and unique experience make her a leader in the industry.
