Stanley Reuter Thornton Alford LLC is an elite complex litigation firm in New Orleans.

Our team is composed of smart, thoughtful, and talented attorneys.

The firm’s practice focuses on commercial litigation and on ethics and disciplinary matters. With our deep understanding of the Louisiana market, we regularly partner as co-counsel with other national attorneys and law firms or take on the role of lead counsel in national matters within the Gulf South region.


Our firm knows that modern business challenges require creative thinking.

We also know that our clients must resolve conflicts in a manner consistent with their business objectives, when possible without the difficulty and expense of litigation. We have assembled a task-force oriented team of resourceful lawyers with a wide variety of experience to achieve those solutions for our clients. Our practice areas include commercial disputes, appellate advocacy, intellectual property litigation, employment law, and utility regulation.


Since our firm was founded in 1997, our national client base and diverse scope of practice have resembled those typically found in larger firms.

We pride ourselves on producing the same caliber of work-product that our clients expect from much larger firms, but with the increased attention and efficiency of a leaner staff. Our firm’s integrity has earned us the respect of the bench and bar alike.
