Defense-oriented Civil and Litigation Divisions

Our firm’s practice groups interrelate to provide staffing flexibility and responsiveness to specific client needs.

Governmental & Regulatory Law

We serve as general counsel, and provide litigation support and operational services, for government offices, boards and departments.

Healthcare

Members of the health care practice group have experience in the broad areas of health care, medical and hospital law, medical malpractice defense, elder law, professional licensure, administrative law, regulation and litigation.

Natural Resource Law

Our lawyers represent clients involved in all aspects of the oil and gas industry, including exploration, production, transportation, marketing, blending and refining of oil and gas products, and the mining of hard minerals.

Labor & Employment Law

We advise and defend employers and employees in all aspects of federal and state employment law, including Title VII, NLRA, ADA, ADEA, FLSA, FMLA, OSHA and ERISA, as well as in matters involving Louisiana employment laws. Our experienced attorneys handle negotiation and preparation of employment and contractor agreements from retention through termination, and defend clients in wrongful discharge actions, breach of employment and non-competition agreement enforcement actions, severance wage claims, and in all employment related disputes.

When appropriate, we also employ alternative methods of dispute resolution, such as arbitration, mediation, mock trials, mini-trials, and, most often, effective negotiation, in an effort to secure the best result at the least cost.
