Mrs. LeBreton's practice areas focus on all aspects of real estate development, including sales, acquisition, leases, and land use, as well as title insurance law and defense. She has particular depth in the resolution of complex title issues, which includes curing the title on 43,500 acres for the largest landowner in St. Tammany Parish, and the oversight of the resolution of hundreds of title insurance claims for national title insurance underwriters. With special expertise in riverfront and historic title, Rose has been the “legal architect” for the development of Tulane University’s riverfront properties. Development of this project requires in-depth knowledge of riverfront title and regulatory issues, and involves working closely with the Port of New Orleans, the New Orleans Convention Center, and the City of New Orleans on behalf of the client.
Mrs. LeBreton has also used her experience to craft the land use rights, conditions, and restrictions necessary to unite ten individually-owned properties in the French Quarter into one working complex, and develop multiple sites through lease or acquisition for a national bank in Louisiana and Texas. At Lugenbuhl, she leads the real estate group and founded LAWLA Title, LLC, an in-house title agency providing commercial closing services.
