Nick is active in the Louisiana and New Orleans Claims Associations. He frequently presents continuing education seminars to insurance industry personnel and closely-held businesses on insurance and risk management topics.

In additional to insurance defense, insurance coverage, and transportation litigation, much of Nick’s practice centers on catastrophe litigation such as wind, hail, and flood claims, and legal advisory work for closely-held businesses regarding their needs in expansion, employment litigation, contract negotiation and disputes, and collections.
