The attorneys in Wilson Elser’s New Orleans office focus their practices on maritime, environmental and energy law on a local, national and international level. They are significantly experienced in the areas of marine pollution and casualty response and are designated as response counsel for a number of Fortune 500 companies in the marine and energy sectors. They also maintain a substantial regulatory and commercial litigation practice. 

As dictated by the nature and scope of client engagements, New Orleans office attorneys may collaborate with firm colleagues in nearby port and coastal cities, notably including Mobile, Alabama, where an attorney experienced in maritime, environmental and energy law is resident.

Our attorneys are experienced in the substance and subtleties of the Louisiana legal system, distinguished by its basis in civil, rather than common, law.

The office additionally offers ready access to virtually any kind of legal service, 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.
