Bradley Murchison's litigation attorneys have litigated a wide variety of federal and state cases involving complex litigation. We define "complex litigation" as a lawsuit that presents unusual challenges because of the nature of the underlying facts, the quantity or nature of documentation at issue, the number of parties, or the pendency of other related actions. When clients are involved in complex litigation, the firm's attorneys work to solve problems creatively in ways that are consistent with the strategic goals of the clients.
The sheer size of complex litigation is often daunting to a client. Clients are concerned about how much it will cost them to litigate such cases. The firm's overall goal for such clients is to have these cases dismissed as early as possible with as little money spent as possible. Our attorneys have successfully achieved such early dismissals in numerous cases. If a case does go to trial, the firm will try it in any venue, dangerous or not. The firm has achieved defense verdicts in venues where other law firms might have advised the client to settle based on the venue alone. There are instances, however, where settlement is the right solution for a client. For such cases, our lawyers work to posture the case with the goal of achieving as favorable of a settlement as is possible.
Several of our litigators are members of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates and others are recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® and Super Lawyers of Louisiana® in various areas of litigation. All have a proven track record of success in the courtroom.
- In a case of extreme importance to both the citizens of the State of Louisiana and to its electric power generators, acted as special counsel to the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC”) in conjunction with The State of Louisiana through the Attorney General (“AG”) and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (“LDEQ”), before the United States Court of Appeals for the D. C. Circuit challenging the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”) Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (“CSAPR”). In its landmark decision, the Court completely vacated CSAPR and remanded the matter to the EPA for reconsideration and reissuance of proper regulations under the Clean Air Act. The decision will leave in place the current cross state air pollution regulations that have proved to be effective in reducing cross state air emissions while the EPA revises CSAPR to comply with the Court’s decision. The Court’s decision is significant for both Louisiana utilities and citizens due to the massive adverse impact that CSAPR would have had on both the cost of electricity for Louisiana ratepayers and the availability of electricity to handle summertime needs.
