“We wanted to be our clients’ trusted partner for litigation defense and that continues to be our mission every day.”

It’s remarkable to look back 25 years and recall the events of 1997. “Google” was first registered as a trademark. Netflix was launched on (discs!). Bill Clinton was in the White House. The world lost Mother Teresa and Princess Di. 

In New Orleans, André J. Mouledoux, Wilton E. Bland, III, Georges M. Legrand and Alan G. Brackett, who had worked together for over a decade, joined to form a law firm that would handle maritime, workers’ compensation and insurance defense work. Five attorneys from their prior firm joined them with the mission to create a great place to work that values team members as well as clients. The new firm, Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett (MBLB), was anchored by trust in each other and the ability to provide aggressive, professional and ethical litigation defense. 

MBLB has seen strong and steady growth through its 25 years. Three original associates are equity members. The firm’s practice has grown to include trucking and transportation defense, municipal law and corporate services. Their federal workers’ compensation practice extends nationwide. 

“Seventy percent of law firms don’t survive their founding members. We were determined to grow MBLB so it wouldn’t be one of those,” says Alan Brackett. “We wanted to be our clients’ trusted partner for litigation defense and that continues to be our mission every day.” 

“What a ride it’s been!,” says Georges Legrand. “We started with mutual respect and trust in each other, including the knowledge we were excellent attorneys and would work hard, so that the firm would succeed and prosper. Those attributes are still present today.”
