From the ranks of its formidable professionals, Stone Pigman assembles the teams that clients need to solve their most challenging legal problems.

Since our founding in 1929, Stone Pigman has been, and remains, a law firm for businesses large and small.

From our New Orleans and Baton Rouge offices, we handle litigation matters for clients in state and federal courts throughout Louisiana and the Gulf South.  Our business lawyers assist clients in negotiating and documenting business transactions that are regional and national in scope.

Early in its history, the firm honed its experience in the fields of tax, antitrust, and securities litigation.  Today, our lawyers are equipped to help businesses face complex litigation problems in federal and state courts as well as arbitration venues.  Matters filling Stone Pigman lawyers' trial dockets include class actions, multi-district litigation and other complicated cases. These include lawsuits arising from mass torts, environmental claims, product liability, business disputes, bankruptcy, bank regulation, employment claims, health care, utility regulation, state and federal taxation, construction, insurance, gaming and intellectual property.

Stone Pigman's business practice grew from its origins in taxation and real estate and now extends to virtually all areas of transactional law, including mergers and acquisitions, corporate and business law, securities, corporate finance, intellectual property, technology, health care, employment, executive compensation, franchising, environmental law and estate planning.

Our 80-year tradition of recruiting and training outstanding lawyers enables us to match the right teams of lawyers to our clients' needs.  

Whether in litigation or business, our practice is distinguished by one common feature: outstanding lawyers solving their clients' most difficult problems.
