Firm Overview

In a period of dynamic and important change in the legal profession, we have a sense of our history and a focus on our future. At Lowe Stein, we have been charting a different course for more than 20 years, one lawyer, one client, and one matter at a time. We are neither the biggest nor the oldest law firm in New Orleans, but we have a reputation for producing great work, for being great to work with, and great to work for. Every day, we earn and reaffirm our reputation for ability and integrity by competing with the largest and best-known law firms in courtrooms and conference rooms all over the country.

At Lowe Stein, we are not just lawyers; we are also knowledgeable business people. We know the laws and how to apply them. When needed, Lowe Stein assigns special teams made up of lawyers and other professionals, from a cross-section of practice areas to focus on issues affecting specific industries, business sectors, and personal matters. We dig. We research. We look at issues from different angles and in relation to opportunities for our clients. Sometimes we use traditional wisdom. Oftentimes we look beyond the traditional. Because each client is unique, we tailor our approach to fit the specific challenge.
