IAS LAW LLC: INTELLIGENT ADVOCACY, SIMPLIFIED.

After graduating from Tulane Law School, I started my career as an attorney in New York City litigating antitrust and securities and financial fraud cases for a decade. In Lehman Brothers Securities Litigation, I took several key depositions, including the deposition of the Chief Operating Officer.  I participated in lengthy negotiations of a global settlement involving one of the feeder funds in the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme. In Freight Forwarders Antitrust Litigation, I conducted several interviews in Germany of employees of a cooperating co-conspirator.

Upon returning to New Orleans, I worked for the City of New Orleans as the city attorney for the Department of Public Works and Capital Projects Administration.  During my time in the City Attorney's Office, I handled every one of the City's construction contracts and assisted with construction litigation and public bid disputes. I returned to the private sector where I practiced business, construction, appellate, and employment law until fulfilling my career-long goal of starting my own practice.

Experienced, trustworthy and knowledgeable lawyer. This is the counselor you want and need.
I met Mr. Siddiqui in January 2020 and we worked together over the next 20 months on two separate litigations. One litigation was for an unpaid wage dispute and the other a tort interference claim. When I started searching for legal representation I had no idea what to look for. All I can say is I was very lucky to connect with him and choose him to represent me. He is very organized and has a calming and confident demeanor. His knowledge of the courts and laws made navigating the complex processes of civil litigation straightforward. The process was very stressful and frustrating, but with his guidance and wisdom we settled both matters successfully. I would highly recommend Mr. Siddiqui to any individual looking for counsel in his field.

A Smart, Passionate, and Talented Attorney.
Imtiaz Siddiqui represented me in a civil lawsuit from 2018-2020. I hired him a year and a half into a complex business dispute, and he immediately worked through a holiday weekend to prepare a motion on a tight timeline. Over the next two years, Mr. Siddiqui demonstrated the breadth of his legal knowledge and expertise in both the trial court and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. His attention to detail and creative problem solving brought new ideas to the table and turned the case around in my favor. He presented all of my options and explained legal processes clearly every step of the way. He is professional, responsive, and his independent practice allows him to keep his fees reasonable, which demonstrates that he has compassion for people and strives to make the legal process accessible. I highly recommend Mr. Siddiqui to anyone looking for a smart, passionate, and talented attorney.

Highly Recommend
While in Louisiana I worked at an asbestos litigation firm, and after Katrina, I started my own practice in the same area. I am now retired. Recently I had the opportunity to work with Imtiaz Siddiqui on a matter personal to me. He came highly recommended by two associates. I worked with Imtiaz Siddiqui on my case from inception to conclusion and I was impressed with his legal and negotiating skills. As with any client, communication was important to me and Mr. Siddiqui consulted with me and answered all my questions. I could count on him to answer the phone, return my calls and emails. He was conscientious and kept all dates and deadlines be it a hearing or due date on a filing or brief. Candor and professionalism are important to me and Imtiaz demonstrated this in his dealings with the opposing counsel and the court. I highly recommend Imtiaz Siddiqui.
