Liskow & Lewis was founded in 1935 and includes nearly 130 lawyers in three offices, strategically located in New Orleans and Lafayette, Louisiana and Houston, Texas. Since its inception, the firm’s practice has focused on the energy and oil and gas industry, and has grown to meet the evolving demands of its clients, diversifying into a wide-ranging litigation and transactional practice across the Gulf Coast.
From selective recruiting practices to a strategic lateral process, our focus is on academic excellence and exemplary professional credentials. We believe the highest quality representation for clients begins with the highest levels of talent. This is manifest in the fact that over half of our lawyers were selected to Order of the Coif, and over two-thirds were members of the law review at their respective law schools.
The marketplace historically recognizes this excellence. For example, in 2016, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers, Woodward White, Inc., ranked Liskow & Lewis as the “Law Firm of the Year” for Oil and Gas in the United States. Forty-nine of our lawyers were listed in the 2018 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, Woodward White, Inc., and fifteen are listed in the America’s Leading Business Lawyers 2018 Edition by Chambers USA.
