Stone Pigman has been a leader in the Louisiana legal and business communities for over 80 years. Many refer to us as the "go-to" law firm for complicated transactions and "bet the company" lawsuits. Some call us "the lawyer's lawyer." Our reputation is based on a longstanding record of successful client representation in complex litigation, mergers and acquisitions, real estate development, tax disputes, insurance coverage, intellectual property, and business disputes. Our lawyers are routinely at the helm of the Gulf South region's most significant business transactions. We are frequently called upon to serve as local or lead counsel in the defense of nationwide class actions and multi-district litigation because we know how to handle the most complicated lawsuits.
"I cannot say enough positive things about how the firm's attorneys have helped us . . . [They] are excellent lawyers, and they understand the public arena and how to protect the city's and the corporation's interests. In so many facets of our projects, they've gone above and beyond the call to make sure our needs are met." Cynthia Connick, executive director of The Canal Street Development Corporation
Stone Pigman has a rich history of taking on the lawsuits and transactions that impact the Gulf South region while successfully protecting our clients' interests. This quest for excellence has been a priority since our founding in 1929 by Saul Stone and John Minor Wisdom. Mr. Wisdom went on to become a respected United States Fifth Circuit judge honored for his key civil rights decisions. Today, the Fifth Circuit sits in a building named after him – only a short walk from the firm he founded.
Stone Pigman attorneys regularly lead non-profit organizations and legal associations and include former presidents of the Louisiana State Bar Association, New Orleans Bar Association and Baton Rouge Bar Association.
Our firm's rich history has made us what we are today: uniquely positioned to handle your most complex and fast-moving disputes and transactions.
