Lugenbuhl’s fidelity practice focuses on advising commercial and institutional clients with respect to first- and third-party claims involving employee dishonesty, forgery, and commercial and cyber fraud, including data breach incidents. We have significant institutional expertise in the coverage arena and are well-versed in policy application and litigation in Louisiana state and federal courts.
On the surety side, we advise these same types of clients on claims – and potential claims –arising under various forms of commercial and contract bonds, with a particular emphasis on payment and performance bonds issued in connection with Louisiana construction projects. Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating coverage and contractual claims in the construction industry. We employ a hands-on approach that includes exploring possible practical/business resolutions on the front end and are ready and able to litigate the matter through trial/arbitration in those instances where a business resolution is not possible.
