Graham Williams joined Sternberg, Naccari, & White’s litigation and business teams in August 2020. After five years at a large New Orleans firm, Graham moved to SNW to work with more of his own clients and friends in an energetic and entrepreneurial setting.

Graham’s general business and litigation practice focuses on complex commercial conflicts, real estate disputes, and employment issues. He also consults businesses on corporate governance and employment issues.

Graham has represented a wide array of clients in various industries and stages of growth. Among his representative matters, Graham most frequently handles cases involving allegations of racketeering, breach of contract, unfair trade practices, misappropriation, employment discrimination, and fraud. Graham’s clients have appreciated his pragmatic approach to their legal issues, as he integrates the case within the client’s business practices to understand the business needs of each specific client. A great deal of Graham’s litigation experience has involved failed business deals and joint venture negotiations, taking Graham across the state, on appeal and in various supervisory writs, and through adversarial proceedings in bankruptcy court. Lately, Graham has also been handling enforcement actions and compliance issues for owners and operators of short-term rentals in New Orleans.

A New Orleans native, Graham received his B.A. from the University of Virginia before returning home to New Orleans to pursue his J.D. from Tulane. During his time at Tulane Law, he served his classmates as Executive President of the Student Bar Association, the general student organization of law students. Upon Graham’s graduation, the president of Tulane recognized Graham with the prestigious Tulane 34 Award, and the dean of the law school invited Graham to serve on the Dean’s Advisory Board, where he served for four years.

Graham is a passionate advocate for multiple community and social causes. Graham currently serves as a Board Member for the Young Leadership Council, where he co-chairs the popular Wednesday at the Square concert series to support the city’s cultural economy. Graham also serves on the Livability Committee of the French Quarter Management District. Graham’s personal passions include running, trying new restaurants, and studying wine.
