LuLu Reisman is an experienced trial lawyer who represents companies throughout the United States with difficult and often emotionally-charged litigation. LuLu has handled a wide range of litigation including cases involving breach of contract, products liability, patent litigation, toxic tort claims, construction disputes, and offshore and land-based personal injury and property damage claims.
In products liability and warranty matters, LuLu’s practice has included cases involving aerial platforms, offshore drilling tools and equipment, building materials, cranes, and chemical compounds. She has handled construction and lien disputes for both owners and their subrogated property insurers and subcontractors. Her practice also includes litigation involving patent disputes and breach of contract claims.
In addition to having taught toxic tort law at Tulane Law School, LuLu has vast experience handling toxic tort matters for her clients. She has defended attempts at class certification made by neighboring residents in chemical release areas and by consumers who purchased gasoline that allegedly damaged fuel gauges in vehicles. She also has helped clients in numerous individual personal injury and death matters involving industrial accidents and alleged toxic exposures occurring on land. She has extensive experience in questioning medical, engineering and scientific experts at trial, in class certification and Daubert hearings, and in depositions throughout the country and abroad.
In the maritime area, LuLu has represented clients who have suffered property damage and deferred production arising from offshore casualties, and she is often asked to interpret contractual indemnity and insurance provisions, master service agreements, drilling contracts and charter agreements. LuLu also has handled cases involving barge breakaways and cargo disputes, as well as Jones Act and longshore claims.
In addition to being an active trial lawyer, LuLu also acts as appellate counsel in courts throughout the country. Her service as a law clerk to the Honorable Luther F. Cole, Associate Justice, Supreme Court of Louisiana, before joining Liskow & Lewis provides her with valuable insight into the workings of appellate courts. She recently secured a significant victory in the United States Fifth Circuit for her client, a global leader in the design and sale of baby products. At issue were certain contract provisions that provided patent-like protection over unpatented products offered for sale and in the public domain. As a result of LuLu’s efforts, the district court’s summary judgment dismissal of LuLu’s client’s claims was reversed on appeal.
