Steeg Law is pleased to announce that Richard L. Traina has joined the firm as an Associate in the litigation practice.
Richard’s practice areas focus on commercial litigation, real estate litigation, and bet-the-company litigation. Richard has more than 25 years of litigation experience in jurisdictions as varied and exotic as the United States Virgin Islands and Cameron, DeSoto and Red River Parishes, Louisiana. He has extensive experience in international litigation, lands and natural resources litigation, mineral litigation, coastal litigation and constitutional litigation.
For much of his professional career, Richard was a commercial litigator, successfully handling whatever types of commercial cases his clients were involved in. As a result, he is well-versed in real estate, corporate, general commercial, banking, contract, tax, and intellectual property litigation.
Richard enjoys the competitive aspects of litigation and creative thinking, analysis, and writing. His written and oral advocacy often receives compliments from judges and opposing counsel alike. Richard’s colleagues have described him as intelligent, hard-working, and unflappable (he survived two deadly hurricanes, including one in the Virgin Islands that destroyed his house around him), with a wicked sense of humor and wit.
