At the 39th annual meeting of the Preservation Resource Center, Frederic Theodore “Ted” Le Clercq was named president of the board for 2013-2014.
Le Clercq will work closely with PRC director Patty Gay, who has led preservation efforts for over 34 years. The mission of the Preservation Resource Center, founded 1974, is to promote the preservation, restoration and revitalization of New Orleans’ historic architecture and neighborhoods.
Building on a history of restoring more than 1,400 properties and touching countless individuals with its outreach and advocacy efforts, the PRC continues its pursuit to preserve New Orleans’ historic heritage. In his remarks, Le Clercq said the $9 billion visitors spent in 2012 in New Orleans is directly related to the generations of preservation efforts; preservation is excellent economic development.
Le Clercq is a partner at the law firm Deutsch, Kerrigan & Stiles, where he co-chairs its labor and employment law section. Licensed to practice law in both Louisiana and Mississippi, Le Clercq also concentrates in professional liability defense, civil rights litigation and constitutional law.
Le Clercq is a frequent speaker for a variety of professional groups in his practice areas and provides training to companies on personnel issues. Le Clercq also sits on the board of the St. Charles Avenue Association, the Audubon Nature Institute and the Louisiana Children’s Medical Center.
