Today’s hospitality industry is one of the world’s most vibrant and economically active sectors. With this wide moat of economic activity comes a landscape of legal issues. The hospitality industry faces challenges from multiple fronts as it attempts to serve the public with lodging, food, beverages and other services. These fronts encompass every kind of liability from liquor liability, to premises liability, foodborne liability and illness prevention. It also encompasses labor and employment litigation and licensing issues as well as everything in between. The business of hospitality’s legal needs will no longer survive on yesterday’s “typical” way of doing business.
