Issues facing the hospitality industry are as varied as the businesses themselves. From purchasing land and securing permits and approvals to ensuring that your business is in compliance with state and federal wage and hour regulations, to drafting management agreements, hospitality clients can face a multitude of daunting legal challenges.

That's where Fox Rothschild can help. Our multidisciplinary team includes attorneys who know the hospitality industry from the inside because they've been there. It is that experience that dictates our group's approach to the industry's needs. We see hospitality from a business-perspective: our team includes a former general counsel to one of the nation's leading restaurant groups and an in-house employment counsel for one of the world's leading hospitality companies. Fox Rothschild brings together attorneys who practice in labor and employment, corporate, real estate, construction law and intellectual property.
