Our lawyers have a history of handling business disputes throughout Louisiana and Texas. We will immediately meet with you to analyze the situation. We will look at contracts, business agreements, and accounting records to determine your available remedies and how to best attain these remedies. If possible, we will resolve the case without litigation in order to save you time and money. If litigation is necessary, then we will aggressively protect your interests and take steps such as filing to freeze any assets so they do not disappear as the case proceeds.
Our roster of attorneys includes a former forensic accountant who understands the types of issues faced by entrepreneurs. We understand that the best way to resolve problems is to prevent them from occurring in the first place. This is why we provide services such as drafting business agreements and bylaws, and assist with employee issues. By assisting you with these tasks we are able to help your business run more smoothly which, in turn, allows you to focus on increasing profits.
We aggressively seek litigation solutions short of trial, and we have significant expertise in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration. In structuring settlements, we look at the overall insurance, regulatory, and tax implications—both for the near-term and for the future. When a trial is necessary, we bring exceptional experience and skill to the courtroom as well as an impressive record of success.
We recognize the potentially crippling costs of discovery, particularly e-discovery, in major litigation and are committed to employing creative, cost-saving solutions that will maximize value to our clients without compromising excellence.
