Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons, LLP has expanded its Gulf Coast practice, opening a new office in New Orleans, Louisiana. This office is Thompson Coe's sixth office, joining Los Angeles and Saint Paul among its locations beyond Texas.
"New Orleans was a natural choice for expansion, and the talented insurance attorneys joining us not only augment Thompson Coe's robust insurance defense practice, but increase the firm's capacity to provide new and expanded lines of business, including an admiralty and maritime practice" said Shawn Phelan, a member of Thompson Coe's Management Committee.
"The Gulf Coast region is geographically desirable and aligns well with Thompson Coe's growth strategy. Our Houston office was already handling cases in Louisiana, and the firm will now be able to serve the needs of our clients in Mississippi and Alabama as well."
The four trial attorneys who make up this office bring with them extensive experience in a wide range of practice areas, including energy and marine, admiralty, environmental, tort litigation, insurance coverage, bad faith, labor and employment, workers' compensation, transportation, professional liability, and general liability, among others.
Since 1951, Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons, LLP has been recognized as a premier litigation firm and national authority on insurance law. With multiple offices throughout Texas, California, Minnesota and now Louisiana, Thompson Coe is poised to continue its tradition of providing excellent legal services to the insurance industry and its other diverse clients.
We invite you to welcome them to the Thompson Coe family. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our new colleagues to discuss your needs in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast.
