The shareholders of Lugenbuhl, Wheaton, Peck, Rankin and Hubbard recently celebrated the appointment of Sally Brown Richardson to Tulane University Law School’s Charles E. Lugenbuhl Professorship during an investiture ceremony that took place on Nov. 21.
A specialist in comparative property law, Richardson joined the Tulane Law faculty in 2012 and is the inaugural holder of the professorship. Established through an endowment the Lugenbuhl firm presented to Tulane Law School, the professorship is named for the firm’s founder, the late Charles E. Lugenbuhl, who received his law degree from Tulane in 1951.

A veteran of both the United States Navy and Army, Lugenbuhl went on to become a nationally recognized attorney in admiralty and maritime law. He founded Lugenbuhl, Wheaton, Peck, Rankin & Hubbard in 1986.
