Commercial & Business Litigation

Our commercial litigators have honed their skills by handling everything from disputes between individuals to complex contract claims between large businesses and multi-party class action suits. We have years of experience defending commercial and consumer lenders, employers in labor and employment cases, representing all participants in the construction industry, and in litigating franchise disputes, RICO claims and securities litigation.

Our commercial attorneys are led by members with advanced business degrees and technical experience and training. Such extensive professional training allows us to work closely with experts in the field and communicate clearly with our clients and the courts in a knowledgeable, cost-efficient manner. Several of our attorneys have specialized training and certifications that enable them to analyze and discuss the complex and technical issues at an industry level, and to communicate that in a manner that is comprehensible to the trier of fact. This department is headed by one of our Senior Members who is listed in Best Lawyers in America, Louisiana Super Lawyers and the national Super Lawyers Corporate Counsel Edition.

Whether we are representing a manufacturer in a product liability case, a lending institution, or a developer, we immerse ourselves in their business to understand how best to present their position and represent their needs. This level of commitment to the client translates into well-prepared, concise and understandable presentations in mediations, arbitrations, and at trial.
