Regardless of its duration, however, we will continue to provide our clients with uninterrupted service. Your support, friendship and trust are so important to us as we get through this trying time together. We wish you all good health for you and your families.

Retail & Hospitality Practice

Retail and Hospitality clients face a wide variety of potential adverse exposures ranging from the most common slip and fall case to sensitive false arrest and racial discrimination actions. Retailers have become targets for significant money damage claims and awards against major retailers have been on the rise.

Further, our unique knowledge of the industry allows us to not only evaluate the potential monetary exposure to the client, but also potential impact upon the retailer’s public perception.

Our extensive experience with the retail, hotel, and restaurant industry allows us to tailor our defense to suit the client’s needs.
