Faith Flugence Joins the Firm as an Associate
Stone Pigman is pleased to announce that Faith C. Flugence has joined the firm as an associate in its New Orleans office.
Faith joins the firm from Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, where she was an associate in the firm’s corporate litigation group and represented Fortune 500 companies in an array of lawsuits including derivative actions and other suits in the Delaware Court of Chancery. She joins Stone Pigman’s growing litigation team.
The Lafayette, Louisiana, native graduated from Howard University School of Law, where she received a merit scholarship and was the co-captain of the Charles Hamilton Houston National Moot Court Team. She also held several leadership positions in Epsilon Sigma Iota Sorority, Incorporated, a legal sorority dedicated to the advancement of Black women in the legal profession.
“We were impressed with Faith’s experience, involvement, and potential as a young lawyer,” said Michael Walshe, chairman of the Stone Pigman Management Committee. “Her work with corporations brings interesting insight to our litigation team, and we are looking forward to helping her grow her practice and clientele.”
“Faith will further deepen our bench of litigators, particularly in disputes between owners and management of companies, also known as business divorce cases," said Paul Masinter, chair of the Stone Pigman Litigation Section.
Flugence is no stranger to New Orleans. She earned her undergraduate degree in criminal justice, cum laude, from Dillard University, where she was on the dean’s list and won the Outstanding Scholar Award and the Justice Revius O. Ortique, Jr. Scholarship.
“Stone Pigman has a reputation for talented lawyers who do important work for clients and the community,” said Flugence. “I am thrilled to join the team and ready to hit the ground running and make an impact as an attorney in my home state.”
Outside of work, Flugence loves spending time with her family and friends, cooking Cajun specialties, and traveling.
