Brent J. Cobb handles disputes involving construction, sales and use tax, franchise tax, premises liability, product liability, insurance defense, personal injury and complex litigation.  He represents insurance companies, governmental entities, architects and engineers, contractors, corporations, limited liability companies, small businesses and individuals in the state and federal courts of Louisiana, as well as in administrative proceedings before state agencies. 

Regardless of the client's size, location or type, Brent strives to deliver effective, efficient legal help through hard work, forthright communication, alternative dispute resolution and use of the firm's case-management technology resources.  He closely monitors changes in the state's tax laws, delay-claim law affecting the construction sector, bad faith litigation and the duties of insurers.    

He shows the same passion for his law practice as he does to his interests outside of work, such as his volunteer service to those less fortunate, including Habitat for Humanity and Lighthouse Louisiana, a non-profit helping individuals with disabilities.  Brent also loves to study sugar cane farming, the seafood industry, architecture and other eclectic aspects of the history of his beloved home state.
