We help our clients in all areas of the leisure and hospitality industry. Our clients trust us to help them manage their legal and business challenges. From daily operational issues involving contracts, agreements and employee matters, to company-wide construction projects, corporate transactions and financings that impact the company’s future, RRD has the experience and resources on which clients depend to succeed in the competitive hospitality business.

We complete necessary hospitality transactions for our clients, including public and private equity financing; securitized and syndicated loans; participating and convertible loans; mezzanine and other hybrid loans; and credit and lease financings.

We assist hospitality clients with day-to-day operations and decisions. We routinely advise hotels, resorts, casinos, restaurant chains and other hospitality businesses on management and employee contracts, vendor and supplier negotiations and agreements, branding and intellectual property matters, rewards and loyalty programs and revenue growth strategies.

Our attorneys have substantial experience in the design, development and construction of hotels, resorts, casinos, restaurants, mixed-use developments and other hospitality-related properties throughout the world. Our attorneys negotiate and draft development agreements; architectural, engineering and other design agreements; construction management agreements; general contracts; contracts for specialty equipment and interior fixtures and myriad other contracts necessary for completing projects.

In addition, we assist clients with their related real estate needs, including the purchase and sale of property; taxation issues, securing zoning permits and compliance with regulations for development projects.

We have extensive experience in helping clients minimize the risk and impact of costly litigation that arises in the course of business. From contract disputes with vendors and suppliers, employment-related actions and construction litigation, to protecting valuable intellectual property, the firm seeks to resolve matters quickly and favorably. When possible and practical, we use alternative dispute resolution and other non-judicial options that avoid the high costs and negative publicity of lengthy litigation.

We offer a full suite of legal services and proactive counseling to help keep the workplace running smoothly. Our preventive approach emphasizes compliance with federal, state and local employment laws, with the goal of reducing costly workplace disruptions and litigation. We draft and negotiate employment-related agreements, such as executive contracts, noncompete agreements; confidentiality agreements; and separation agreements. 

In an increasingly international labor market, compliance with immigration laws is key. Our immigration team advises clients on work authorization and immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services. 

Also, our experience includes assisting clients in the hospitality industry who face financial distress or the fallout of distressed suppliers and business partners. We help clients minimize the risks associated with acquisitions and dispositions of distressed properties.

We work closely with each client to develop the right plan to guide them through challenging and changing conditions. Whether this involves bankruptcy, enforcement of creditors’ rights, financial restructuring, or an insurance matter, we are committed to protecting value and advancing our clients’ interests.
