Liskow & Lewis’s Abaunza Named A BTI Client Service All-Star
NEW ORLEANS— Liskow & Lewis announced Donald Abaunza has been named a BTI Client Service All-Star for 2017.
BTI Client Service All-Star is the only independently researched, client-driven ranking of attorneys. The attorneys recognized on this list are the end result of more than 310 in-depth, independent interviews with legal decision makers at the world’s leading organizations.
The only way a lawyer becomes a BTI Client Service All-Star is for corporate counsel to single out an attorney for client service exceeding all others. No attorney can lobby to be added to list, there is no self-submission process, and law firms cannot provide names of clients to be contacted.
A former Managing Partner and President for Liskow & Lewis (1996-2003), Abaunza has more than 46 years of experience in admiralty, energy and commercial law. He has been lead trial counsel in cases involving maritime issues, products liability, oil and gas casualty matters, contract disputes, pipeline accidents, construction litigation and insurance matters.
He was selected as one of the top ten attorneys in Louisiana and has been described as a leader in the profession in Chambers USA, Louisiana Super Lawyers, and The Best Lawyers in America. Abaunza was inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers in 1994. He taught a trial advocacy course at Tulane University Law School for 10 years. In 2009, he was awarded the Distinguished Admiralty Attorney Award from the New Orleans Bar Association, and The Best Lawyers in America selected him as the Distinguished Admiralty Lawyer of the Year for his area.
Liskow & Lewis is a 129-member law firm serving a variety of clients from offices in New Orleans, Lafayette and Houston.
