Lawyers at M&R have unparalleled experience serving the hospitality industry. They routinely represent hotel, resort and restaurant owners, operators, franchisors, franchisees, developers and financiers in an array of transactional and litigation matters. Indeed, the firm has assembled a vertically integrated, interdisciplinary team of practitioners (our Hospitality Group) that applies a collective fluency in hospitality to drive superior results for our sector-specific clients. For their part, hoteliers turn to M&R’s hospitality attorneys to handle matters involving hotel law and regulations, real estate, labor and employment, IP, general corporate law and commercial and business litigation.
Our hospitality specialists have their fingers on the pulse of the hospitality business, always staying current on the events and trends shaping the industry, even outside the boardroom or courthouse. The firm is involved in the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Cornell Institute for Hospitality Labor and Employment Relations and the Hotel Association of Los Angeles. And M&R lawyers frequently speak at national and regional hospitality industry conferences and events (like ALIS Law). They regularly contribute articles published in prominent hospitality trade magazines and newsletters as well. It’s this engagement in the hospitality space that allows us to so effectively and efficiently help clients navigate the hotel, resort and restaurant landscape.
