Founded in New Orleans in 1926 by Eberhard Deutsch and Emmett Kerrigan, Deutsch Kerrigan LLP is built on the foundation that we are problem-solvers, applying enduring principles of craft to serve clients effectively and efficiently.  With over 70 trial attorneys and a substantial support staff, we apply our legal and support resources carefully to most effectively meet the needs of our clients.

We represent local, national and international businesses, as well as state and local governmental bodies and non-profit organizations. They range in size from Fortune 500 companies to small, emerging businesses, and individuals and include, among others, manufacturers, insurance companies, contractors, real estate developers, financial institutions, airline companies, architects and engineers, oil and gas exploration and dredging companies, and marine service businesses.

A Sensible Approach to Litigation

Deutsch Kerrigan views the task of resolving a legal problem as a partnership between the client and its outside counsel. Our goal is to work closely with each client to provide high quality, effective legal service which exceeds the client's expectations.

We get results, and we get them efficiently by knowing our clients and their businesses.  When faced with a particular problem, we combine this knowledge with our familiarity of the law, agency, court or other tribunals to craft a solution that best meets our clients' goals.

Using a sensible approach to litigation, we help our clients resolve disputes by balancing desired business outcomes with what is smart economically.  We’re relentless about moving cases forward to keep your case in the “red zone” where matters get resolved and cases don’t collect dust.
