"Ethics for Engineers - Discussion"

As a degreed engineer, Keith J. Bergeron realizes that it gives his construction clients a sense of security to know they share similar backgrounds and that he understands their type of work.

Receiving a lawsuit brought against you brings the stigma that something went wrong, but sometimes that is not a true statement. Keith investigates claims and defends his clients in all aspects of construction and construction surety law. He devotes special attention to architectural and engineering defense, licensing and contractual claims.

In 1991, Keith earned his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from the University of New Orleans. He is also a Louisiana engineering intern. After graduation, he worked at Chevron for about 10 years as a mechanical engineer in its pipeline company, responsible for delivering crude oil and natural gas in the Gulf of Mexico to refineries onshore along the Gulf Coast.

In 1998, Keith graduated from night school at Loyola University School of Law. One year later, he began his practice with Deutsch Kerrigan, LLP in its construction department. He is currently a partner with the firm.

He is a regular speaker at the University of New Orleans’ engineering school, local professional societies and is active with the American Bar Association's Forum on Construction Law, where he served on the steering committee for, and as the Chair of Division 10 (Transportation, Environment, and Legislation), and currently serves on its Governing Committee and chairs its Technology Committee.
