01-20-2006

Kean Miller is pleased to announce that 12 lawyers, formerly in the Admiralty & Maritime, Construction, and Energy practice areas with Lemle & Kelleher, LLP, have joined the firm in the New Orleans office.

"We are very excited to welcome these distinguished attorneys to our law firm. They are an outstanding resource for our clients. Our offices are located in Louisiana’s major port cities --- New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lake Charles -- and this esteemed group brings over 150 years of combined experience in maritime issues, admiralty law, marine insurance, oil & gas, drilling and exploration, pipelines, construction, and energy law to our clients.” said Gary A. Bezet, managing partner of the 121-lawyer firm.

The new group from Lemle & Kelleher nearly triples the size of Kean Miller’s New Orleans office from 7 attorneys to 19 attorneys. The strategic acquisition builds on Kean Miller’s position as the largest law firm in the Capital Region, and strengthens Kean Miller’s regional presence. The firm now has 121 lawyers in Louisiana. “New Orleans and her port have been a vital part of commerce in the United States for almost 300 years. The recent hurricanes did not change that. The Admiralty and Maritime practice in south Louisiana remains strong. And, oil and gas exploration is going to play a huge role in the future of New Orleans – and Louisiana – and we are very proud to play a part in that future. We at Kean Miller believe that Louisiana’s future is very much linked to New Orleans’ recovery. This addition is evidence of Kean Miller’s commitment to the future of New Orleans and Louisiana,” added Bezet.

Our offices are located in major port cities throughout Louisiana, including New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Lake Charles, Louisiana. Our Admiralty and Maritime team has significant experience in personal injury defense, property damage claims, appeals, and oil & gas law. We offer clients detailed admiralty experience with regard to activities in the “oil patch” involving the exploration, development, production and transportation of oil and gas. We represent numerous clients in “brownwater” and deepwater (or “bluewater”) matters throughout the Gulf Coast region. Many members of the team are involved at a leadership level in the Maritime Law Association, the Greater New Orleans Barge Fleeting Association, the Marine Index Bureau, Mariners Club Port of New Orleans, and the maritime and admiralty sections of the Louisiana State Bar Association and the American Bar Association. We represent our clients before all state and federal courts, governmental regulatory and administrative bodies, and in complex litigation. We serve as counsel to local, national and international oil and gas producers, vessel owners and operators, shipyards, drilling contractors, service companies, brokers, barge lines, and underwriters.
