My Methods

I Share Risk

Lausten & Co., LLC shares risk with its clients through the use of contingency and alternative fee arrangements. Complex commercial and environmental litigation involves various levels of risk.  Lausten & Co. LLC’s willingness and ability to share risk demonstrates our desire to provide first-rate legal services in a manner that accommodates the needs of our clients.  Contact Kristin M. Lausten today to discuss how an alternative fee arrangement may work for you.

I Work Efficiently

Lausten & Co., LLC provides comprehensive legal services to clients ranging from individuals and small business owners to domestic and international insurers throughout Louisiana and the gulf states. Having prior “big law” experience, I pride myself on providing one-on-one service to all clients with the in-depth experience and resources that a large firm can offer with the streamlined handling and personal attention they can provide in a boutique firm setting.  This allows Lausten & Co. to be more efficient and cost-effective, particularly in the handling of complex commercial, coverage, maritime and environmental litigation.

I am Dynamic

Solving complex problems requires much more than a “bulldog” at the negotiating table and in the courtroom.  Thorough knowledge of the area of law and the client’s goals, emotional intelligence, preparedness, understanding situational dynamics and, when effective, an aggressive approach, must all be part of a great attorney’s toolkit.  When hiring an attorney, think about the type of problems that need to be solved and the skills necessary to solve them.  Often, hiring the “bulldog” results in an expensive headache.  At Lausten & Co. we approach each case with a dynamic view with the client’s goals in mind.  While we are aggressive, we keep the entire picture of the case in view – from start to finish.

I am “Trial Ready”

Aggressive preparation from the outset assures that a litigation strategy is formulated based upon strong legal theories and attainable goals. Aggressive discovery from the outset also results in proper trial preparation and a tactical advantage.  With an assertive approach, and in ongoing consultations with the client, Kristin M. Lausten is able to develop legal and/or investigative strategies that might otherwise be missed.  This “trial ready” strategy often results in the discovery of critical evidence the other side failed to disclose and successful outcomes whether through reduced settlement or dismissal of claims.
