Firm Details

Companies with business interests across the South turn to Phelps Dunbar for counsel on their legal needs. With 11 office locations in the U.S. and in London, we serve clients in the region's major commercial centers. Our 300-plus lawyers focus on six core areas: labor and employment, litigation, business, admiralty, insurance coverage and healthcare. But it’s more than our casework that sets our firm apart.

We spend time with you off the clock, so we can learn everything from your strategic goals to challenging operational issues. We are known for asking questions, not just about what is, but about what should be. And we make sure that you access our experience seamlessly, with every lawyer in every office available to be part of your team. We do this because anything can make the difference in a business-critical deal or lawsuit.

We embrace the future, not just of your industry but of our own. We are constantly looking for how to improve services and outcomes through technology. Through our Phelps Analytics Lab, we partner with Tulane University to pilot programs that use AI to identify business trends, develop litigation strategies and improve efficiency.

We are proud to offer national talent with local pricing to companies working throughout the Gulf South. We welcome the chance to work with you.
