Career

Larry Simon is an experienced trial lawyer focusing on complex, high-stakes litigation involving energy, oil, gas, title and property issues in Louisiana. Larry is known for handling oil and gas royalty and other mineral lease issues, energy marketing contract disputes and cases involving the processing of natural gas and the contracts affecting these operations. He also has experience in utility regulation, including telecommunications regulation, having served as counsel for the Louisiana Public Service Commission in its rate cases for Bell South Corporation, and in the implementation of price regulation for the company.

Oil and gas companies and operators often turn to Larry when there are competing claims from a servitude involving a mineral lease. He is well-versed in the regulatory overlay in Louisiana and the history of the state's Civil Code and Mineral Code. "I know the mineral law and its history," he adds. "When I want to assert a right, I can explain why it's written the way it's written."
