R. Parker LeCorgne is special counsel in the firm’s Business & Commercial Transactions Practice Group. A business owner’s business lawyer, Mr. LeCorgne draws on his decades of experience in private practice, as head of several successful companies, and as a member of the board of directors of several international enterprises to provide clients with full-spectrum counsel on a broad range of legal, commercial, and financial matters. He understands the strategic goals and day-to-day concerns of owners, shareholders, executives, investors, lenders and borrowers alike. Over the course of his career, Mr. LeCorgne has helped numerous publicly traded and closely held companies negotiate and close mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, asset-based financings, lending agreements, real estate purchases and sales, and other contracts and deals.

Mr. LeCorgne is president of the New Orleans-based Dr. G. H. Tichenor Antiseptic Company, a position he has held for nearly 20 years at the 110-year old, family-owned business. Before this, he co-founded and served as managing director for LeCorgne Loewenbaum & Co., LLC, formerly a private investment banking firm that provided financial advisory services for emerging-growth and middle-market companies.

Mr. LeCorgne began his legal career at Jones Walker, where he delivered broad-based counsel to publicly traded and privately held corporations. At the firm, he gained a lasting reputation as an effective business negotiator and for his ability to successfully resolve conflicts between clients and their strategic partners, vendors and customers, often before reaching the courtroom. Subsequently, he co-founded his own law firm focusing on corporate, project finance, real estate and banking law, where he served as a name partner for more than a decade.

Mr. LeCorgne is actively involved in the legal, business and civic communities of Greater New Orleans and beyond. He remains a member of the board of directors of the Dr. G. H. Tichenor Antiseptic Company, and also serves on the boards of New Orleans-based Phoenix Development Company, Inc., and of two companies based in The Bahamas, New Providence Development Company and Bethell Estates, Ltd. He is currently a director of Ochsner Health System and a trustee (and past chairman) of the Delta Waterfowl Foundation. He has variously served as chairman, vice-chairman, and trustee for the Louisiana Nature and Science Center, Lighthouse for the Blind, the Gulf Coast Conservation Association, Trinity Episcopal School, and Isidore Newman School.
