Budget-Friendly, Fixed-Fee Legal Advice for Our Hospitality Clients

Hospitality establishments encounter a wide variety of day-to-day legal matters and questions that should be handled by experienced counsel. However, due to the unpredictable cost of hourly-rate legal services, many important legal issues are often ignored, overlooked or assigned to non-attorney personnel, resulting in operational inefficiencies and exposure to fines and litigation.

Created by Shutts & Bowen LLP, the Hospitality Legal Program (HeLP) is a legal services solution that provides hospitality establishments, including hotels, restaurants and nightclubs, with affordable, fixed-rate access to attorneys experienced in the legal issues facing the hospitality industry.
