Hospitality & Recreation

In contrast to some of our other verticals, hospitality-focused businesses typically combine tangible assets with some sort of an in-person client experience. Sometimes the assets involved are brick-and-mortar locations. Other times the focus is more on inventory management, sales of goods, and exploitation of personal property.

Hospitality and recreation businesses require more attention to compliance with particular municipal regulations and local ordinances, because these types of businesses are more tied to particular locales than ventures dealing with intangible assets. At the same time, questions regarding corporate governance and intellectual property still remain. We help our clients navigate the legal aspects, so that they can focus on improving their own clients’ experiences.
