Hospitality & Regulated Industries
The hospitality industry is built upon exceptional customer experience, service and value. Our team approach strives to deliver the same to our clients. Cloutier Arnold Ortega assists its restaurant and hospitality clients with all aspects of their business, including licensure, contracting, leasing, purchase agreements, employment contracts, financing (both private and institutional), and litigation. Our attorneys advise hotels, restaurants and hospitality clients throughout the Pacific Northwest.
As hospitality companies become larger and their business more complex, they face legal challenges similar to any large business venture. We can provide comprehensive counsel to restaurant companies and their owners, operators, managers, landlords, tenants, franchisors and lenders. We negotiate relationships between clients and their business partners, customers, and suppliers, including strategic alliances, equity, franchise, and license agreements, and hotel management and lease agreements.
