The City of New Orleans uses the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) to base its decisions on where businesses can be located and rules and regulations are in the City's Municipal Code. I identify what needs to be done for your business to establish or continue to run in your chosen space.

The firm's areas of practice are business transactions, intellectual property, and environmental law as it applies to food. Whether drafting contracts for growers to sell to grocery stores; filing application with the Trademark Office; or fighting for long term land use options for urban farmers, we use the law to protect your investment in the land and your food related business.
