Scott Raney focuses his practice on commercial real estate, finance and development. He advises clients regarding purchase and sale agreements, commercial leases, loan documents, and title issues, among other things.

Before joining Lenhart Pettit, Scott spent three years practicing with a prominent New Orleans-based law firm. Scott has represented developers, contractors and builders, and his experience includes negotiation and drafting of purchase agreements and leases, resolution of title issues, and counsel related to zoning compliance and variance requests.
