Carolyn Richmond was featured in the Real Estate Bisnow article “What Will Become of NYC's Restaurant Scene.” While the full text can be found in the August 4, 2014, issue of Real Estate Bisnow, a synopsis is noted below.

On July 30, 2014, a team of panelists at Bisnow's NYC Restaurant Development Summit, hosted in New World Stages' Avenue Q theater, spoke to 225 attendees on how to thrive in a business of thin profit margins.

Carolyn Richmond was among the panelists Bisnow's NYC Restaurant Development Summit. At the panel, she explains that of the 18 suits filed in Downtown's US District Court the morning of Bisnow's event, 12 involved the Americans with Disabilities Act and two focused on wage and hour issues; almost all were against restaurants.

The biggest misconception about the ADA, she adds, is the typical owner's belief that his or her property is grandfathered in because it's old.

Richmond co-chairs Fox Rothschild’s labor and employment and its hospitality practice groups.
