The Greater Baton Rouge Business report has highlighted the Flood Law Blog as a resource for businesses affected by the catastrophic Louisiana floods. Rudy Aguilar, Managing Member of McGlinchey Stafford, was quoted as saying, “We always strive to provide unprecedented legal services to our clients, and right now countless businesses throughout Louisiana seek to find answers on post-flood legal issues. We hope that this new free resource will help both our clients and the broader business community on their path to recovery.”
The Flood Law Blog was featured in two articles in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans edition of The Advocate.
In the New Orleans Advocate, an article titled “Law Firms Use Katrina Experience to Help Baton Rouge Area Flood Victims,” McGlinchey Stafford attorneys Brad Axelrod and Jean-Paul Perrault discussed the blog’s roots in the firm’s experience helping clients after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and how the Flood Law Blog has helped serve as a resource for FEMA assistance and SBA loans.
Perrault is quoted in a second article, “Post-Flood Insurance, Legal Issues Dot Businesses’ Road to Recovery,” on landlord-tenant issues relating to commercial property that have arisen following the flood. Axelrod also commented on cash-flow challenges for small and midsized businesses following a disaster.
