Ivan Rodriguez joins the ranks of Phelps Dunbar as a partner focusing on marine and energy litigation in the Houston office. Ivan’s concentration on maritime and energy expands Phelps’ regional footprint of the collective team.
“Ivan is respected as a go-to attorney in the area of maritime, admiralty, and insurance. He elevates not only his practice area but also broadens our team’s capabilities and strength across the coast,” comments regional admiralty practice coordinator Brian Wallace.
Ivan states, “Phelps’ strategically positioned footprint, experienced team, and resources will be invaluable to my practice and enable me to be more efficient and effective in serving my clients. Accordingly, the decision to join the Phelps team was an easy one.”
The Phelps Dunbar maritime team is heavily concentrated in major port cities across the gulf coast—Houston, New Orleans, Gulfport, Mobile, and Tampa—and advises a wide range of national and international clients. The practice is nationally ranked in Band 1 by Chambers and Partners in Transportation: Shipping/Maritime Litigation and is “well known for the accomplished maritime litigation group with deep industry expertise, sought after by multinational companies, shipowners and underwriters, including major P&I clubs.”
