Restaurant, Retail and Hospitality

Overview

The restaurant, retail and hospitality industry relies on insurance coverage to protect against an enormous range of risks, from bodily injury claims to devastating property damage, to crime and even dreaded bedbug claims. At Anderson Kill, we combine our firm’s expertise in analyzing and obtaining coverage with our specialized knowledge of the restaurant, retail and hospitality industry to maximize coverage for our clients.

But Anderson Kill’s experience in the restaurant, retail and hospitality industry goes beyond insurance coverage.  Our Restaurant, Retail and Hospitality Industry Group attorneys routinely assist clients with needs relating to real estate and construction, bankruptcy, executive compensation, litigation, finance and a wide range of corporate issues.  Our specific experience providing legal services to companies in the hospitality industry ranges from the routine — such as negotiating construction contracts — to the extraordinary — such as litigating a multi-million dollar insurance coverage case arising out of severe hurricane damage to an international resort and acting as insurance counsel to the world’s largest chain of casual dining restaurants.

We realize the importance of communicating directly with our hospitality clients and friends, and in furtherance of our commitment to keep them abreast of recent developments in the law, Anderson Kill’s Restaurant, Retail and Hospitality Alert covers a variety of issues the hospitality industry face.
