Bryan Dupree joined the Lafayette office of Sullivan Stolier Schulze, LLC in 2022, bringing with him multiple years of experience in a transactional, litigation, and regulatory practice. Bryan works on the full range of health care regulatory issues and supports the Firm’s nationally recognized Fraud and Abuse Practice Group handling state and federal fraud, waste, abuse and enforcement issues in the administrative, civil and criminal context. Bryan’s portfolio includes internal investigations for healthcare organizations facing regulatory or law enforcement agency review, as well as compliance and enforcement exposure assessments for healthcare providers, suppliers and systems.

Bryan received his Juris Doctor, Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law, and Energy Law & Policy Certificate from Paul M. Hebert Law Center, Louisiana State University in 2018. While in law school, he served as Executive Graduate Editor of the Journal of Civil Law Studies, was recognized as a Chancellor’s Scholar, a Dean’s Scholar and received the John P.

In less than two years, Bryan was the principal drafter of two successful Louisiana Supreme Court writ applications, one on contractual interpretation and the other on ownership of real property.

A seventh generation South Louisiana native, Bryan began learning French at six years old and earned his bachelor’s degree in French Literature and Political Science from Millsaps College in 2011. Between college and law school, Bryan worked for five years as a bilingual tour guide, giving historic tours in French and English to visitors from around the world.
