Additionally, we are experienced in drafting, negotiating and enforcing convention service agreements and facility use agreements, and in handling employment claims, processing challenges to ad valorem tax assessments and defending personal injury claims. 

We also assist clients with:

  • Procurement agreements
  • Formulation and implementation of revenue management strategies

Liquor license issues can have a critical effect on the establishment, management, and economics of hospitality properties because of the considerable revenue generated from food and beverage operations. Our team of attorneys is not only thoroughly familiar with all facets of the permitting process, including obtaining security interests, application and qualifying principals on the application, and license transference, but also includes some of the most sought-after counsel in California regarding alcohol licensing issues.
