Pilié Asked by Mayor Landrieu to Serve on Board of Housing Authority of New Orleans

7/15/2014

Adams and Reese Partner Glen Pilié has been asked by New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu to serve on the Board for the Housing Authority of New Orleans. HANO has long been under federal receivership, but its control has recently been returned to the City of New Orleans and Mayor Landrieu is attempting to put together a five-person Board to direct the agency.

The term will be four years. Pilié will help the Board form committees and establish procedures for how to conduct its business. The focus of HANO is the development of affordable housing in New Orleans that will for the most part replace the housing projects that existed for many years before Hurricane Katrina.

Pilié joined Adams and Reese in 1984 and has supported development of the firm’s practice in environmental and toxic tort litigation with emphasis on mass torts. Prior to his legal career, he was an environmental/regulatory engineer for a major oil company. He is ranked by Best Lawyers® (by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners), Chambers USA and Louisiana Super Lawyers® (by Thomson Reuters) in Environmental Law.

Pilié also serves on the Board of Directors of the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board, and he is an active member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Louisiana Society of Professional Engineers and Mid Continent Oil and Gas Association.
