Lugenbuhl attorneys advise clients about construction, fidelity, surety and financial institution bonds and represent fidelity and surety bond companies in coverage and merits disputes. Our clients’ success is a direct result of both our experience and our belief that listening carefully to their concerns results in finding the best solution to meet their organization’s needs.

Our attorneys have long experience representing both private- and public-sector insurers, reinsurers, developers, engineers, architects, contractors, and industry-related suppliers. We employ a hands-on approach that includes exploring possible and practical business resolutions on the front end, but are well-prepared to litigate any matter through trial or arbitration if a negotiated resolution is not possible.


Lugenbuhl’s fidelity practice focuses on advising commercial and institutional clients regarding first-party 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’s state and federal courts.


On the surety side, we advise 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 a successful track record litigating coverage and contractual claims in the construction industry.
