Firm Overview

Provosty & Gankendorff, LLC, a boutique law firm based in New Orleans, Louisiana, provides a more personalized approach than larger firms can provide while we offer legal services across a wide range of specialized areas for a diverse clientele.

Our client base includes insurance companies, corporations, entertainers, and medical and legal professionals. We also assist an array of businesses, from smaller local companies to international corporations needing on-the-ground counsel in Louisiana. All our attorneys cover both transactional work as well as litigation. In addition to our strong focus in insurance, maritime, entertainment and business law, Provosty and Gankendorff handles complex litigation, including class-action and antitrust cases.

Boutique Size Means Attentive Service

In larger firms, cases tend to be passed between so many attorneys and assistants that clients have difficulty finding answers. At Provosty & Gankendorff, the lead attorney in each case remains the main contact, with an additional attorney brought on for support. We respond quickly to inquiries and take the initiative to alert clients of any changes to the status of their cases or of any relevant changes in the law. At the beginning of the professional relationship, attorneys engage in exploratory sessions to listen to our clients’ needs, discuss their options, and develop strategies to achieve their goals.

Leading Through Experience

Partners Henry St. Paul Provosty and Edgar D. Gankendorff have decades of experience in the areas of insurance defense, maritime defense, legal and medical malpractice defense, entertainment law, complex litigation, class actions, and environmental and toxic tort litigation. On the strength of their experience, they were both appointed in the early 1990s to serve as Special Assistant Attorneys General for the State of Louisiana. To this day, the state calls on their legal expertise for a number of legal challenges, including health, transportation, infrastructure, and environmental matters.

Professionals in the Louisiana entertainment industry also frequently turn to Provosty & Gankendorff to tap the firm’s collective experience. Musicians, record companies, promoters, managers, writers, publishers, TV and film production companies, professional athletes, and other established or aspiring media figures rely on Provosty & Gankendorff to protect their financial interests so they focus on their careers and creativity.

Valuable Legal Counsel That’s a Good Value

Provosty and Gankendorff understands that clients view payment for legal services as an investment that should yield a positive return. We leverage technology to work in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Clients appreciate our ability to operate within a budget and our willingness to promptly notify them if an issue arises that may affect their costs. When a case involves litigation, we aggressively seek results while remaining mindful of the big picture and what will best serve the client’s goals in the long run.
