The Louisiana Difference

Louisiana has a unique legal system with roots in the civil codes of mainland Europe. Under our system, succession is the term used to describe how heirs to an estate receive the property, assets, money or businesses of a deceased relative or friend. In other jurisdictions, this process is termed probate, but here in Louisiana, we sometimes do things differently.

Succession of ownership, succession of title, succession planning, contests and disputes involving executors and estate administrators are among the concerns of our clients. When someone dies, the law requires that important steps must be taken to ensure that their wishes about assets, including businesses or property, are followed. Children, relatives, other heirs and creditors may have to be notified. An experienced succession law attorney can satisfy the legal requirements of succession and can help represent your interests, reducing the chance that an administrative error or deficiency in procedure will make ownership or operation of a property or business more difficult or impossible in the future.
