Experienced, Respected
Civil Litigation Attorneys
Attorney Kenan S. Rand

Location: New Orleans Office




Kenan has successfully defended thousands of toxic tort exposure cases against shipyards, sugar mills, power houses, refineries, and product manufacturers since he began practicing in New Orleans in 1994 after graduating from Tulane Law School, cum laude.

Originally from Wilson, North Carolina, Kenan attended Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia, where he was the President of the Virginia Organization of German Students in 1984, and Middlebury College in Vermont, where he had double major in German and Philosophy and learned to ski quite well.

He met his wife, Ellie, in Colorado, where they were living following college, who lured him to her hometown of New Orleans (as he says, "One cannot dynamite ladies out of this City..."), where he readily acclimated and is deeply enmeshed in many social and community activities, ranging from volunteering for Habitat for Humanity to leading several Carnival Krewes.

Kenan has also been retained as an Expert Witness on the reasonableness of attorneys' fees and is available to serve in that capacity upon request.
