Shields | Mott LLP has grown from four attorneys in 1995 to a firm that bears an elite name in Construction Law, with a record of successful litigation outcomes. Our varied other practices enable us to represent clients in crossover areas including insurance, contractor licensing issues, labor relations and employment law, products, real estate, bankruptcy and communications systems.

Recent demands for Intellectual Property conflicts have created an area of substantial growth for our firm. We are conveniently located in the New Orleans CBD but our corporate and individual work is regional.

The firm has attained the highest AV Martindale Hubbell® rating. Many of our attorneys are named in Chambers, Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America and other superlative listings.

In the News

top 50 construction firms
Shields | Mott was recently recognized by Construction Executive magazine as one of the Top 50 law firms in the country for Construction Law, and one of only a few New Orleans law offices ranked in the Top 50. Law firms specializing in construction have the unique industry experience essential to guide their clients through a complex maze of compliance and contracts to ensure the health of the construction enterprise. Contractors, developers, and sureties that retain counselors experienced in the unique aspects of construction law are more likely to come out ahead when a contract dispute arises. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The legal ramifications of a poorly worded contract, failing to keep track of new employment and safety laws, and many other risks can easily be avoided with a capable construction law firm in the contractor’s corner. If the need arises to arbitrate or litigate your construction claim, we have extensive knowledge and experience to put toward your claim.

Construction law. It’s what we do.
