About the Firm

Whether you are starting a business, undertaking a construction project, purchasing resource rights on real estate, or dealing with your specific industry regulations, you need a law firm that understand your business. Our experienced lawyers offer legal advice and representation tailored to your business’s needs. Many small businesses in Louisiana can’t afford in-house counsel but need the advice. We act as in-house counsel for many entrepreneurs and small business owners to provide an on-going business consultation and legal advice as needed on issues such as personnel problems and policies, contract reviews and negotiations, licensing issues, mergers and acquisitions to non-competition agreements and business succession strategies. Preventative legal advice is the best investment a business owner can make. It will provide defenses and potentially save you thousands of dollars in litigation down the road.

We do not simply suggest generic solutions to your specific problems. We take the time to understand what you are trying to achieve and provide legal strategies aimed to meet your needs while maximizing your limited resources. Contact us for an initial consultation with a lawyer who can help you.
