Governmental & Regulatory Law

Skilled attorneys protect your property rights in the area

More than 500 years of combined legal experience.

Serving Louisiana business clients for more than 120 years.

The firm often provides representation in a broad range of matters involving governmental agencies and entities at every level, including federal, state or local. At times a corporate or individual client is involved with a regulated industry and needs or opposes a particular permit or license or there have been permit or land use violations. These efforts have involved zoning issues, Corps of Engineers 404 and Section 10 Permits; LDNR Coastal Use Permits; remediation of abandoned oilfield or “legacy sites;” air, water or soil pollution; oyster leases including “Alternative Oyster Culture” (AOC) or “off-bottom oyster culture;” mariculture permits; coastal restoration issues; and recycling (RCRA) permits.

At other times, clients have an enforcement, zoning or nuisance problem, which requires appearances before or negotiations in person with, governmental agencies. This is particularly so with penalty proceedings before governmental agencies and officials. In addition, the firm also provides services where a client requires formal interpretation or clarification of a statute or regulation, or assistance in amendments to existing law. We draft proposed amendments, bills and regulations, provide information to legislative committees regarding proposed legislation, meet with industry representatives or groups to address regulatory concerns, and testify before legislative committees. We also assist clients where a problem has arisen involving government, and firm attorneys assist in the achievement of a successful resolution of the issue.

Finally, we often represent several offices, agencies, boards or departments of government in their operations. These efforts include providing general advice, representation in litigation, litigation support, consultation, public records requests, advice regarding open meetings, budgeting and other services. At times, these efforts have involved the successful defense or pursuit of claims for millions if not billions of dollars in complex litigation.
