At Stone Pigman, we believe that our lawyers deliver superior client service.  Stone Pigman attorneys are experienced, creative and focused on finding the best solution for our clients, whether their goal is to resolve litigation or acquire additional assets.  We advance our clients' interests and defend and grow their business, whether that business is a local start-up, a regional manufacturer or a Fortune 50 company.  We are serious advocates and partners for all our clients, large and small.

Our litigation lawyers have multi-faceted experience ranging from product liability cases, toxic tort suits, regulatory matters, contract claims, insurance claims, partnership and other internal business disputes and family conflicts.  Our cases run the gamut from the multi-district litigation involving hundreds of thousands of individual claimants to the single plaintiff and defendant lawsuit.  Our business and real property lawyers represent publicly traded companies, family businesses and start-up operations in contract negotiations, real estate transactions and governance issues.  

The success of our firm is rooted in our lawyers, who are recognized as leaders in the law.  We lead the legal profession as bar association officers, delegates, examiners, section leaders and committee chairs; as members of committees of the Judicial Conference of the United States and the council of the Louisiana State Law Institute; as instructors for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy; and as members of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, International Society of Barristers, American College of Trial Lawyers, American College of Real Estate Lawyers, American College of Mortgage Attorneys and American College of Trust and Estate Counsel.  Stone Pigman lawyers are law faculty members; authors, editors and contributors to leading professional publications; and instructors to other lawyers and legal professionals.  Our active participation in the legal profession means that our clients receive seasoned representation by lawyers who are current on cutting edge developments.

Throughout its history, Stone Pigman has hired both from the ranks of our local law schools, including Loyola, Tulane and Louisiana State University, and national schools, such as Harvard, University of Virginia, New York University, University of Texas, University of Notre Dame and Emory.  We regularly hire lawyers who graduate Order of the Coif and members of the law review and moot court competition teams.  For Stone Pigman lawyers, academic and professional achievements are not ends in themselves.  They are means to accomplish our mission: delivering superior client service in the form of focused counsel and zealous representation.
