Real Estate Law

The Ward Law Firm represents individuals and institutions in connection with the purchase and sale of commercial and residential properties in Louisiana and Mississippi, and all phases of real estate development and financing. On behalf of our clients, we prepare and review purchase and sale agreements, advise on negotiation options, represent clients in real estate-related litigation.

Zoning and Land Use

Our firm represents clients in front of city and parish/county commissions and councils on issues pertaining to zoning and land use, as well as representing clients in court on zoning and land use matters.

Governmental Permitting

Given the unique nature of regulations of our coastlines, we represent clients throughout the permitting process before federal, state, and local authorities. We are experienced in permitting before the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Louisiana Department of Natural Resources, the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

Our attorneys have extensive experience with the permitting requirements under the Scenic River and Streams Act that is administered by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries.

Many people in Louisiana own waterfront property. Under the Louisiana Civil Code, those indivuals are considered riparian land owners. As most of us are acutely aware, coastal erosion is a very serious concern for all of us. We have also successfully helped clients reclaim lost land from the Louisiana Department of State Lands.
