Adams and Reese Partner Leslie Lanusse, in the firm’s New Orleans office, has been named by corporate counsel to the “BTI Client Service All-Stars” for 2014, the only independently researched, client-driven ranking of attorneys. This is Lanusse’s fourth consecutive appearance on this list.
The "BTI Client Service All-Stars" is an elite group of attorneys nominated solely and exclusively by clients in BTI’s independent study as delivering the absolute best in client service. BTI conducted more than 250 individual interviews with corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 and large organizations to select the attorneys. Corporate counsel named just 49 labor and employment attorneys as leaders in client service, including Lanusse.
Lanusse is also ranked by Chambers USA, Louisiana Super Lawyers (by Thomson Reuters) and Best Lawyers (by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners) in Labor and Employment Law. In 2013, she was selected among the 2013 class of “Women of the Year” by New Orleans CityBusiness as the publication recognized 50 individuals for their professional career and community contributions.
At Adams and Reese, Lanusse has more than two decades of experience in the representation of management in all phases of employee relations. Her experience has included defending claims of discrimination before the EEOC and the Louisiana Commission on Human Rights; handling claims arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act and state compensation commissions; defense of OSHA and environmental whistleblower claims before administrative agencies; defense of FMLA claims; defense of claims of violation by employers of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986; and defending employers during investigation of compliance with wage and hour laws.
