A New Orleans native and lifelong resident, Alan focuses his practice on the companies and industries that rely on the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico for their livelihood. Alan’s comprehensive representation of maritime clients spans the gamut of claims and issues arising on the water, always focused on achieving best possible outcomes through thorough coordinated preventative measures, incident investigation, litigation, and appellate advocacy.
As a member of Lugenbuhl’s Admiralty & Maritime group, Alan represents vessel owners, operators, and insurers in all manner of disputes and incidents arising from domestic and international maritime commerce. Alan’s diverse practice includes litigation arising from vessel collisions, environmental incidents, personal injuries, maritime liens, carriage of goods, and criminal matters; representation of clients in administrative and regulatory agency proceedings before the National Pollution Fund Center, Customs and Border Protection, and the Office of Foreign Asset Control, among others; and preparation of contracts, charter parties, and company policies aimed at avoiding disputes before they arise.
Alan provides start-to-finish representation and creative solutions to his clients. His representation often begins with an on-scene investigation and coordination with state and federal authorities within hours of an incident and concludes with briefing and oral argument before an appellate court. From beginning to end, Alan looks for opportunities to add value on his clients’ behalf with imaginative legal arguments, settlement proposals, and litigation strategies.
