The attorneys in Wilson Elser’s New Orleans office focus their practices on complex litigation involving maritime law, construction law, related insurance coverage issues and employment- matters. We also draft and negotiate contracts used in the maritime and oil and gas industries, including time charter agreements, noncompete agreements and master service agreements, to name a few.
Our attorneys are experienced with the substance and subtleties of the Louisiana legal system, distinguished by its basis in civil law, rather than common law. With New Orleans enjoying explosive growth in tourism, population, shipping and construction, we are well equipped to assist our clients with their related legal needs.
We are an integral and well-regarded player in this vibrant city’s close-knit legal community.
Beyond our local capabilities, we offer ready access to virtually any kind of legal services, drawing on the collective experience of our attorneys and our colleagues throughout the broader firm. Wilson Elser’s national practice structure, leveraging the benefits of technology, makes it possible for one point of contact to marshal all of the resources our clients require to advance even their most ambitious legal objectives.
