Our firm handles a variety of litigation, transactional, and regulatory issues. One of our primary areas of concentration is insurance defense and coverage disputes. We defend both insured and self-insured businesses against tort claims. We also represent employers and their insurers against claims brought by employees, including state and federal workers' compensation claims. We defend vessel owners and maritime employers against claims brought by seamen. We pursue compensation liens and third party recovery and defend against intentional tort claims asserted against employers and their insurers. We handle premium audit litigation including suits to recover additional premiums.
We handle commercial and general litigation matters including contract cases, redhibition claims, software defect claims, intellectual property litigation (patents, trademarks, and copyrights), and antitrust suits.
We work with many "startup" businesses. We not only form corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships, but assist these companies with contractual, documentary, and regulatory issues. We help out-of-state businesses relocate to Louisiana or set up operations in Louisiana.
In addition to our core litigation and transactional practice, we are proud of our ability to take on unusual and complex matters on behalf of our clients. We do not shy away from difficult cases or convoluted transactions.
