Business And Commercial Practice
Whether our business clients encounter technology, contract, risk management, advertising or employment obstacles, we understand the complexity of legal needs that arise in commercial endeavors. Over the years, we have had the pleasure of working with business women and men in various industries to help advance their business goals, maintain smooth operations and resolve legal disputes.
The following cases are representative of our business and commercial practice:
- Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Program (SELA): Our attorneys assisted with the drafting and negotiation of a cooperative agreement for a $1 billion drainage improvement program with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and, subsequently, successfully defended lawsuits from third-party residents who claimed damages as a result of the drainage improvements.
- Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act: Our attorneys successfully defended two clients in federal class action litigation after plaintiffs alleged that they transmitted unsolicited advertisements via facsimile in violation of the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 and other laws.
- Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition: Our attorneys successfully represented a client in litigation involving computer telemetry system failure, defeating the claims against our client and prevailing on a $1 million counterclaim in favor of our client.
