Healthcare is a dynamic industry spanning multiple legal areas and subject to numerous ever-changing regulations. Members of our healthcare team can help you navigate the regulatory environment, adapt your business strategies to maximize efficiencies, manage risk, and resolve disputes.
The hospitality industry faces a diverse set of legal challenges and operating margins are often sensitive to social and economic trends. Our attorneys have worked in the hospitality industry for years, and are familiar with all aspects of operations. We have experience acting as outside general counsel for hospitality firms small and large, and in all segments of the industry including hotels, resorts, restaurants, event venues, clubs, meeting & special event planners, and travel services.
The financial crisis – and the Dodd-Frank Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that arose therefrom – have brought increased awareness and focus on the laws and regulations surrounding the financial services industry. Consumer financial services have particularly come under increasing scrutiny. Our team has decades of experience representing financial services firms and is on the leading edge of trends in the industry and changes in the regulatory environment at the federal and state level.
The construction and development industry is subject to complex regulatory environments involving multiple tiers of government. The industry is also inextricably tied to the unique environmental issues, building codes, and neighborhood attitudes of the project location. Project finance can also often be a maze of federal, state, and local incentives. Our dedicated team has decades of experience navigating the financial, regulatory, and public relations aspects of construction and development. In particular, our team has strong relationships with local government in many areas and can assist you with zoning, permitting, and land use issues, as well as commercial closings, project due diligence, and title issues.
Staffing and employee placement services have seen a boom in recent years as businesses have shifted toward more variable cost models in their operations, particularly in the healthcare and technology industries. The industry is subject to many evolving areas of the law, including non-competition agreements, employee misclassification under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and joint employer liability. We have years of experience litigating disputes in the staffing and employee placement services industry, and have also helped clients develop risk management programs to limit potential exposure.
