Established in 1928 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Breazeale, Sachse & Wilson, LLP (‘BSW’) is one of the oldest law firms in the state of Louisiana. The firm takes great pride in its long history of client service. With more than 70 attorneys, the firm is among the largest firms in the state and one of the larger law firms in the South. BSW’s clients range from individuals and start-up companies, to Fortune 500 corporations, governmental entities and not-for-profit institutions. Further, one of the hallmarks of the firm is its devotion to providing the highest quality of legal services to the firm’s clients in a manner consistent with their objectives and cost concerns and in a personalized environment that facilitates the mutual trust and respect necessary for a successful attorney-client relationship.

This team approach enables clients to call upon the guidance of any and all of its attorneys whose experience in various legal and business matters spans many disciplines. In this manner, the firm is able to provide its clients with specific and in-depth advice that they require in order to achieve their goals.

The members of the firm have served or now serve as presidents, directors, and officers of community and business organizations. Past and present members of the firm have served the city and state as appointed or elected officials. BSW attorneys are active in Bar Activities, serving as officers and directors in the American, Louisiana, and Baton Rouge Bar Associations. The firm maintains a staff of highly trained legal assistants, including Certified Public Accountants, and its employees use the most advanced systems and equipment available to deliver an effective and economical legal product with a focus on client service. Simply stated, the firm’s primary focus is growing and protecting each client’s business.
