About Phelps Dunbar
Phelps Dunbar is a regional law firm of more than 270 attorneys - in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina and London - serving clients in the South as well as nationwide and abroad. Our expansion began in the mid-1980s when we committed to become the pre-eminent law firm for companies and individuals needing transactional or litigation services in the South. Our goals were and are simple: create a significant presence so that our clients need only one firm for legal services throughout the region; deepen client relationships through a commitment to understand clients’ businesses and their goals; and advance clients’ interests by providing excellent, effective and efficient legal services and creative solutions across all areas of our practice, including litigation, business, employment, insurance and admiralty.
Dedicated to Client Service
For years, the firm has been recognized by publications and independent third parties that report excellence among law firms.

The firm’s lawyers and every member of our supporting staff are committed to our clients’ success, regardless of a client’s size or stage of development—from the smallest local start-up company to a venerable global corporation. The firm believes that successful legal representation for a client begins with a clear understanding of the client’s business and objectives, followed by a collaboration with the client to achieve the best possible results.
Phelps handles virtually every type of business transaction and civil case in federal and state courts across the region, and regularly provides legal services in the following areas:
